– We are taking drastic steps to become one of the countries that is the strictest in the world in telecom security, says Minister of Media, Sports and Culture Oliver Dowden.

On Monday, the government will present a new security law to Parliament.

“An important part of that is the fight against high-risk companies, and we have set an ambitious schedule to remove Huawei equipment from our 5G network before 2027,” Dowden continues.

Chinese telecommunications companies have been blacklisted in a number of Western countries due to concerns that the Chinese authorities are using the companies to spy on foreign nationals.

The British government said in July that it would exclude Huawei due to security concerns, and that the UK would ban the purchase of new 5G equipment from Huawei from December 31.

Dowden then said that parts of the equipment already installed, including existing 4G infrastructure, should be removed by 2027.
