UK bans Huawei’s 5G technology installation from September

The British government announced on Monday that it will prevent British telecoms companies from installing new 5G technology Huawei equipment after September 2021, as part of its plan to get rid of the Chinese technology giant Huawei and damage its infrastructure, and seeks to remove its equipment used in 5G networks within a period no later than 2027.

The British government changed its policy towards Huawei completely in July, under pressure from the United States, which said that the Chinese company threatens the country’s security, after Britain previously allowed Huawei to provide it with the infrastructure to operate 5G networks.

The government banned the purchase of new equipment for the company after the end of this year and required the total removal of the equipment installed by the end of 2027, and under the new legislation, British companies will be fined equal to 10% of their sales or 100,000 pounds for each day they violate the ban.

On Monday, the government announced its strategy to diversify the sources of 5G network services with an initial investment of 250 million pounds, in addition to conducting experiments in partnership with the Japanese company NEC and establishing new research institutions.
