Huawei Makes Up 60% Of Germany’s 5G Network

The Chinese embassy has reminded Germany that 60 per cent of its 5G network is currently made up of Huawei equipment, as the country mulls a possible ban on the Chinese tech giant.

The German government is currently reviewing telecoms suppliers. An interior ministry paper noted “a specific supplier could be banned from providing critical components if it were deemed to be directly or indirectly controlled by the government of another state.”

Australia, US, Japan, India, New Zealand, and Canada have also banned Huawei equipment from their 5G rollouts.

In Germany, it’s been a different story. The three major telcos, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and O2, have Huawei components in their 5G built.

he official was responding to reports that Germany intends to ban Chinese technology, including Huawei and ZTE components, in the construction of the nation’s 5G infrastructure.

“For a long time, Huawei has operated in compliance with laws and regulations, and its technology complies with safety standards,” an embassy spokesperson said in response, calling any attempts to remove Huawei network gear an “abuse of state power to interfere in the market” and an “attempt to smear Huawei with trumped-up charges.”
