UK to allow limited 5G access to Huawei despite concerns

The UK enters into a deal with the Chinese telecoms company to provide parts of the 5G network, despite security threat.

    Telecoms company Huawei is directly linked to the Chinese government but despite warnings from the United Kingdom's intelligence services that this could compromise national safety, Britain has contracted it to roll out some parts of its 5G network.

    The UK is following in the footsteps of several other European countries that have already done similar deals with the Chinese company.
