Earlier in the year, the government of the UK announced that they would still continue with Huawei for their 5G infrastructure. But this doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. This move comes after the latest sanctions the US government put on Huawei.
Now that Huawei can’t cooperate with US companies it means it would use “untrusted” technology. And this is a deal-breaker of the UK government. This decision will be confirmed very soon by the national security council.
Huawei mostly but a lot of other Chinese companies have had some trouble with the US government and the sanctions that they have put upon them. This “battle” is ongoing and who knows what other countries it may impact next.
