The U.K.’s Huawei decision represents a victory for the Trump Administration, which has been trying for years to pressure allies to remove Huawei equipment from their telecoms infrastructures over concerns that the Chinese government could possibly lean on the company to allow it to conduct espionage: The U.K. had earlier resisted the U.S. government’s requests, amid pressure from telecoms companies who noted Huawei’s equipment was the most advanced and cost-effective:

After a long period of delay, the U.K. government finally decided in January this year that Huawei would be banned from the core of its telecoms network, although its hardware would be allowed in up to 35% of peripheral parts of the network, under intense oversight from the intelligence community: But then, in May 2020, the U.S. imposed sanctions restricting Huawei’s ability to use U.S. technology. After they were imposed, the U.K.’s National Cybersecurity Centre (NCSC) conducted a review, which found it could no longer guarantee the security of future Huawei equipment:

The existing ban on Huawei equipment in the core of U.K. 5G networks remains in place: Officials admitted the ban would slow the rollout of 5G in the U.K., but stressed the move was vital for national security. They also said the distant deadline of 2027 to remove all Huawei 5G equipment was necessary in order to not create new national security lapses by moving too fast: The new rules will not affect 2G, 3G or 4G equipment designed by Huawei, which will be allowed to remain in the U.K.’s networks: The equipment is not the focus of U.S. sanctions, and had already been analyzed and approved by experts at the U.K.’s NCSC before being added to the country’s telecoms infrastructure:
