Since Huawei’s 5G went public, it has been frantically suppressed by the United States. First spread the "Huawei threat theory", and then blocked the supply of parts and chips from US companies to Huawei. Although the U.S. sanctions continue and the British authorities have not yet decided whether to conduct thorough and close cooperation with Huawei, the four major British telecom companies can’t wait to announce their cooperation with Huawei and start building 5G networks in the country.
According to the British Guardian, the four major UK operators, Vodafone, EE, O2, and Three, have expressed their hope to cooperate with Huawei. Among them, Vodafone has used Huawei equipment to open 5G networks in 7 cities in the UK. Huawei has EE builds hundreds of sites. The other two, O2 and Three have also signed 5G network construction contracts with Huawei.
These operators use Huawei equipment in the "non-core" part, mainly wireless communication equipment. Nevertheless, their approach is actually equivalent to a gamble, once the British authorities decide to ban Huawei equipment, these costs will become scrap.
In addition, it is not unreasonable for the four major operators to dare to invest in this way, because the United Kingdom will pay a huge price for disabling Huawei. A consulting agency pointed out that partial or complete restrictions Huawei will delay the popularization of 5G in the UK by one and a half to two years./p>
Not only will the UK fail to become the global 5G leader, it will The Internet age lags behind other countries. Therefore, the UK will lose 4.5 billion to 6.8 billion pounds (about 38.8 billion-58.6 billion yuan), and the subsequent losses will be immeasurable.
Because there are only a few companies that can provide 5G technology, and Huawei has the most advanced 5G technology.Surgery. Britain still remembers the two days of 4G network paralysis caused by Ericsson’s technical problems in December last year. The United Kingdom is worried that if only Ericsson is used, the old things will happen again.
The main reason why the British authorities have been unsure about their attitude towards Huawei Based on American pressure. On June 4, British Prime Minister Theresa met with Trump in London.Disable Huawei from exerting pressure, even threatening to interrupt the sharing of intelligence between the two countries. Trump confidently declared that the United States and Britain will definitely reach an agreement on Huawei.
However, Trump was subsequently slapped in the face by London Whitehall officials. They said that May did not need to worry about British and American intelligence communications, and the interests of China and Britain were intertwined. In addition, the Secretary of State for Security of the United Kingdom also stated that "I believe in fair competition and Huawei should be given a chance."
The fact is that if Huawei is given a chance, it will win the European market. At present, Huawei has received 46 orders from many countries, and the order volume ranks first among 5G equipment manufacturers. One, most of them are allies from Europe or the United States!
