Chinese vendor Huawei is currently involved in the deployment of 5G networks in the U.K., according to a report by U.K. paper The Observer.
According to the report, major U.K. carriers have built their 5G networks with the help from Huawei. The Chinese company is involved in building the 5G stations in six of the seven cities in the U.K. where Vodafone has launched its 5G service. It is also building “hundreds of 5G sites for EE” and already has won contracts with Three and O2.
Meanwhile, the U.K. government still needs to define whether the company represents a threat to the national security.
