UK to allow Huawei restricted access to 5G network

WANG ZHAO / AFP

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.
