Huawei's network infrastructure hardware is facing more and more setbacks. Australia earlier this year and New Zealand recently rejected Huawei's offer to provide hardware for the 5G network infrastructure, with national security as the main reason. A November Wall Street Journal report said the US has asked close allies to avoid buying and using network equipment from the Chinese manufacturer.
The final hurdle against which Huawei stands is in the UK, where BT Group Plc decided to remove all Huawei 4G network devices within two years. The information was cited by Reuters after it was originally published by the Financial Times.
Apparently there is "an internal policy to keep the Chinese company's equipment on the edge of the telecommunications infrastructure," the report claims, and BT's move is now in line with said policy. In addition, BT has banned Huawei from future bids on 5G network infrastructure, hardware and equipment.
Neither BT nor Huawei commented on this topic, but we expect the Chinese company to respond as usual
