Huawei Technologies Co. will be banned from the U.K.’s next-generation mobile networks, in a sweeping crackdown on the Chinese company that will delay 5G roll out and hit businesses with billions of pounds in extra costs.
Under the blueprint agreed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, operators will not be able to add any new Huawei components to their 5G networks after Dec. 31 this year. All equipment made by the Shenzhen-based company that’s already installed will need to be removed from 5G infrastructure by 2027, the government said, confirming reports by Bloomberg News on Monday.
