UK Gov brings forward Huawei 5G network install ban

The UK government has announced a clearer timetable for the eradication of Huawei telecoms equipment from our 5G networks. This revised timetable was outlined by Digital Secretary Oliver Dowden ahead of a new law being unveiled on Tuesday. It is believed by the UK government that Huawei telecoms equipment is "high-risk" due to the firm's links with the CCP. However, Huawei protests that the reactions of governments like the UK's are "politically motivated," rather than being based on technological analysis.

The major new date within the government's timetable is September 2021. From this date no new Huawei kit may be installed in the UK's telecommunications infrastructure. Referring back to our previous report from July, readers may be confused as at that time the government said that no one would be permitted to buy new Huawei 5G equipment from December 2020 – however please note the difference between buying and installing. It was worried that firms might stockpile the kit and install it at a later date...

On Tuesday the Digital Secretary will put forward the new Telecommunications Security Bill for debate in parliament. If passed, the bill will give the government national security powers to instruct telecoms providers how they can use equipment from 'high risk' firms like Huawei, if at all. The "new and unprecedented powers" can be used to impose hefty fines on telecoms companies that don't comply with the higher standards. Fines could be up to 10 per cent of company turnover or > £100,000 per day.

In addition to fixing the problem we have now, the UK government will be encouraging the sensible diversifying of 5G equipment suppliers. In September we reported upon new BT/EE partnerships with Nokia, and the government is investing £250 million in collaboration and R&D projects with Japanese firm NEC.

The date for the complete eradication of Huawei 5G equipment from the UK's networks remains "by end of 2027".

do they not like back doors? whats wrong with back doors covering their entire country?
Why install ANY of their gear now? Just junk it, instead of installing crap you have to remove later. Who's side are you on? NOT your people, if you are installing this crap STILL going forward. Sorry, time to buy new stuff, PERIOD. It takes you 7yrs to remove this crap? FFS you're fired for being incompetent. By that time they will have stolen every important future IP you have…ROFLMAO. But then maybe that is the point for your govt? The great reset after you bankrupt your people? How many years have you tried to get a brexit? Boris same as old witch May. The deep state is freaky deep people. Fire them all and keep firing until you get a brexit in ONE DAY.

Same with BARR/Durham in USA. Fire them repeatedly until you get someone that will handcuff HUNTER and his DADDY for that laptop and everything else we know now. The laptop alone is enough to file charges on ANYONE else in USA. You would have been in jail Dec 2019 when the FBI first got this laptop. Again, fire until they arrest both. Just keep moving people up in DOJ taking Barr's job, until the person fires WRAY/Haspel/Durham, and anyone else who knew about he laptop since Dec 2019. The guy is a security risk to the country, and it's amazing he hasn't been put to death already. How many crimes do you have to commit to go to jail as a democrat? Reps go to jail for FAKE lying to FBI (meaning even the agents said Flynn didn't lie!). No FBI investigation into all this fraud?

Seriously? Ages of evidence here…Even Obama years. FBI is in on this crap, DOJ too, CIA obviously etc etc…All sold out. 17 agencies need to become ONE, so we can AUDIT and prosecute future idiots far more easily. Audit them all today, as FLYNN tried to get done (which is why they came after him). This isn't about Trump, it was about FLYNN, trump just got in the way and would have allowed Flynn to Audit CIA/FBI/DOJ/DOD etc. He's lucky to be alive still…They need him dead after trump wins this election (heck Trump too, surely on all their lists as he'll put them all to death as traitors with Flynn's help). Hope you're locked and loaded Flynn.

Not sure if serious……….

nobodyspecial is fruitcake that comes onto the forum, spouts absolute nonsense then disappears for a while. They so far into the deep state conspiracy, lord knows they even know what light looks like anymore.

Back on topic.

It's a shame the UK Gov is continuing to do this even though it was sufficiently and readily admitted it was due to to Trump administration pressure. In the report regarding Huawei equipment they said they were a risk due to shoddy engineering and slow to resolve but none of the issues weren't work around-able. Considering Telecoms equipment and switching is on a very heavily isolate and monitoring private network fabric, external intrusion is extremely unlikely and even dialling out from within is extremely unlikely.

But the UK Gov is on a windrush of great decisions right now so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well at least there is a complete diversity in the visitors to the forum I guess…

Talking of Huawei and diversification, at least now the UK Government has recognised that relying on just a few vendors to supply the kit for the networks represents a risk moving forward (as seen already with Huawei). Baby steps I guess;
