UK to allow Huawei restricted access to 5G network


The UK government has given the green light for Chinese telecommunications company Huawei to supply some equipment needed for the country's 5G data network rollout.

The move is a controversial one, with suggestions that the equipment could pose a security risk.

The British government, however, will reportedly only use Huawei infrastructure for non-core technology.
