After months of debate and delays, the UK government has finally confirmed that Huawei will allow part of its 5G infrastructure to be built.
Boris Johnson's government announced that the Chinese giant may continue to play a role The British 5G rollout, despite long-standing pressure from the US to block its participation.
The US has long accused Huawei of using its technological expertise to illegally monitor users around the world, which the Chinese company strongly opposes.  (Photo credit: Shutterstock)
What does the government decision mean?
The UK government's decision to grant Huawei access to the country's 5G network does not grant full access, as the Chinese manufacturer's equipment is blocked for sensitive people. Parts of the mobile network are subject to an upper limit.
It is not allowed to provide more than 35 percent of the radio layer of a 5G network, and it is blocked Huawei is a key supplier to all four major UK operators, but its future role was uncertain as it was feared to be in use its kit represents a national security risk persistently rejected.
MPs and intelligence chiefs have pointed out that there is no technical reason to rule out Huawei, and that the decision is a political one. You can continue to work with your customers to keep the rollout of 5G on track.
“This evidence-based decision will result in a more advanced, secure, and cost-effective telecommunications infrastructure that is fit for the future. It gives Britain access to world leading technology and secures a competitive market, "said Victor Zhang, Vice President of Huawei.
" We have been delivering cutting-edge technology to UK telecommunications operators for more than 1
and innovation, as well as ensuring consumers have access to the best possible technology. ”
Why is Huawei under pressure?
Huawei has made these claims, often without a lot of backing should be set up, always emphatically opposed There is no denying that Huawei has invested heavily in research and development over the past few years that the company has put in terms of expertise across most of the industry.
Tensions arose last year when the Trump administration placed the Chinese brand on the "entity list", which restricted the business opportunities of US companies. This led to global effects.
Google blocked Huawei's future access to Android updates, UK-based chip designer ARM ceased all brand activities, and several retailers and networks around the world discontinued business with Huawei for fear of sanctions U.S. government.
However, corporate history (created by former People's Liberation Army officer Ren Zhengfei) appears to be very worrying for the United States.
Huawei has already signed contracts to help support and build 5G networks across multiple nations, including Russia, South Korea, and Finland. However, many countries (including Germany and Australia) are still caught up in the debate over the use of Huawei devices. So expect this argument to get around for some time.
What is 5G?
Simply put, 5G is the future of the Internet. The "G" stands for generation, with the technology being the fifth generation of connectivity worldwide and offering faster speeds and more reliable connections than ever before on smartphones and other devices.
The combination of the latest network technology and the latest high 5G devices should offer connections that are many times faster than current connections. The average download speed of around 1 GBit / s will soon be the norm.
Networks are expected to charge Internet of Things technology and provide the infrastructure required for transportation. Huge amounts of data that enable a more intelligent and connected world.
5G networks have been introduced around the world with providers offering connectivity technologies in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, as well as in a variety of other countries.

When will Britain get 5G?
The major UK networks started introducing their 5G networks in 2019, which means that some users can now use the next generation networks – of course if they have a suitable device.  EE was the first British airline to launch its 5G network, turn it on in six cities in May 2019 and now expand to over 50 cities.
Vodafone 5G service started in July 2019, and almost 40 cities can now connect.
Next followed Three with which a 5G service was started in London on August 19. However, there is a catch: it is initially only available for broadband services at home. The carrier's 5G mobile rollout, scheduled for late 2019, has been postponed to early 2020 to ensure that all elements of the network have been expanded.
Finally, O2 launched its 5G service in October 2019 and hopes to expand it to 50 cities by summer 2020.
