  • Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei has said it is remaining patient in light of media reports that the UK government is charting a gradual phase-out of its equipment in 5G network infrastructure.
  • The Sunday Telegraph reported this weekend that a new review by the UK’s National Cybersecurity Centre (NSCS) is set to highlight that Huawei equipment is no longer safe to use, due to new restrictions imposed by the US Department of Commerce.
  • The May restrictions introduced by the US administration led the NSCS to embark on a review on Huawei’s involvement in the UK’s future 5G network infrastructure.
