Australia bans Huawei from 5G network

Sharing is Caring!

Chinese-owned telecommunications giant Huawei has been blocked from rolling out Australia’s 5G network due to security concerns.

The government said Thursday that the involvement of a company “likely to be subject to extrajudicial directions from a foreign government” presented too much risk.

The decision also affects ZTE Corp, a Chinese maker of mobile devices.

Shenzhen-based Huawei, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment supplier, had been banned from bidding for contracts for Australia’s broadband network in 2011.
