Battle of UK: China & US fight for Huawei 5G in UK

US to pressure UK to stop using Huawei 5G equipment

US officials will meet with their British counterparts before a key UK decision on using Huawei products, sources say.

The United States is making a final pitch to the United Kingdom in the run-up to a UK decision on whether to upgrade its telecoms network with Huawei equipment amid threats to cut intelligence-sharing ties, people with knowledge of the matter told the Reuters news agency.

The UK is expected to make a final call on how to deploy Huawei equipment in its future 5G networks later this month. It has been weighing US-led allegations that Huawei’s telecoms equipment could be used to spy, against the UK’s relationship with China and industry warnings that banning the firm outright would cost billions of dollars.
