New Zealand Rejects Use of Huawei 5G Equipment

New Zealand’s Director-General of the Government Communications Security Bureau had decided to decline Spark New Zealand’s proposal to use Huawei’s 5G equipment in its planned network, citing significant national security risks.


The telco, however, said that it remains confident the decision will not affect its plans to launch 5G network by July 1, 2020.


New Zealand adds to a growing list of Western countries that are refusing to use Huawei equipment at a time when worries on the rising influence of Chinese companies in the Asia Pacific region are increasing.
