Huawei faces more and more adversities in network infrastructure hardware. Australia earlier this year, and New Zealand recently, has denied Huawei’s bid for suply 5G network infrastructure hardware, indicating national security as the main cause. A November Wall Street Journal report claimed that the United States called on its close allies to avoid buying and using network equipment from the Chinese manufacturer.

The latest obstacle faced by Huawei is in Britain where BT Group Plc decided to remove all Huawei 4G network equipment within two years. The information was quoted by Reuters after it was originally published by the Financial Times.

It is obvious that there is an “internal policy to keep the Chinese company’s equipment in the edge of the telecom infrastructure,” states the report and BT’s move is now in line with the said policy. Huawei is also excluded by BT from inviting future agreements regarding 5G network infrastructure, hardware and equipment.

Neither BT nor Huawei has commented on the issue so far, but we expect the Chinese company to react, as it usually does before you attract or try to restore such decisions.
