Deutsche Telekom against ban on Huawei

Thursday, 13. August 2020 12:14

Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hoettges (pictured) said on Thursday the company is against banning any vendors, including Huawei, from taking part in the creation of German 5G infrastructure.

The comments come ahead of Germany's decision on whether to allow the Chinese tech giant's equipment in the country's 5G network. A number of German lawmakers have agreed with calls from the United States to block the company over national security concerns, but Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is reportedly against the ban.

In July, media reported that Deutsche Telekom increased its cooperation with Huawei despite the possibility of the Chinese company being excluded from the German 5G network.
