Huawei is facing more and more setbacks with regard to network infrastructure hardware. Australia earlier this year, and New Zealand recently, has rejected Huawei's bid on suply 5G network infrastructure hardware, saying national security as the main reason. A November Wall Street Journal report claimed that the United States called its close allies to avoid buying and using network equipment from the Chinese manufacturer.
The latest obstacle Huawei faces is in the UK, where BT Group Plc decided to remove all Huawei 4G networking equipment within two years. The information was quoted by Reuters after it was first published by the Financial Times.
Apparently, there is an "internal policy for keeping the Chinese company's equipment on the edge of telecom infrastructure," the report claims, and BT's move is now in line with said policy. In addition, Huawei was ruled out by BT from bidding on future contracts regarding 5G network infrastructure, hardware and equipment.
Neither BT nor Huawei have commented so far, but we expect the Chinese company to react, as it usually does before you appeal or try to return such decisions.
