Here’s which leading countries have barred, and welcomed, Huawei’s 5G technology


In August 2018, Australia banned Huawei and ZTE from participating in the country’s 5G networks.

That move came under the tenure of former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and he explained why his government made that decision in a recent interview with CNBC.

“Now, the company, the entity that provides that, that maintains it, that has constant access to it, has enormous capability, if it chose to do so, to act adversely to your interest,” Turnbull said about firms that sell 5G equipment.

“No one is suggesting that Huawei would do that, certainly not me. I have great admiration for the company,” he said. “But, capability takes a long time to put in place. Intent can change in a heartbeat, so, you have got to hedge and take into account the risk that intent can change in the years ahead.”

Turnbull highlighted a key nuance — that Huawei hasn’t done anything wrong but there is a risk of of something bad happening if intentions change.
