Foreign media said that the British Parliament recently asked government ministers to explain why Huawei was not banned from participating in the next generation of mobile network construction in the UK. However, for Huaweis products, foreign public opinion has already pointed out that Huaweis products are of high quality and low price, and the cost-effective ratio is very high.
Norman Lambert, chairman of the Science and Technology Committee of the British House of Commons, urged British Culture Minister Jeremy White to make a decision on whether Britain would follow the example of its allies in restricting Huaweis activities, the Sunday Times reported on its website on January 21.
According to reports, the British government said it was assessing the supply arrangements of telecommunications companies to ensure that it had an effective framework to secure the deployment of 5G and all-optical networks.
Huawei said it was proud of the companys contribution to the UK.
In response to the question of the British House of Commons why cant help Huawei, previous reports on the website of Hong Kongs South China Morning Post may have given an answer. The website reported on January 14 that in many European capitals, Hua5G equipment is considered affordable.
In a series of baseless allegations, European governments are paying more and more attention to Huaweis equipment, but they are bound to acknowledge its reliability and cost-effectiveness advantages, said Fitch Consulting analyst Kenny.
Countries are eager to cut costs as much as possible, and one way is to choose cheaper, proven Chinese equipment, Kenny said.
Europe is Huaweis largest foreign market. According to the annual report of the technology giant, the company made 163.8 billion yuan from Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2017. This accounts for about 27% of its total income, more than the combined income of the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region.
In addition to network equipment, Huaweis influence in consumer terminals can also prove its product cost performance and popularity from one side. An article published on January 21 by Pocket-lint, the UKs largest product news and evaluation website, points out that Huawei may be the most well-known of all the companies that have had a huge impact on the UK smartphone industry. Huawei demonstrated its competitiveness in the field of flagship mobile phones through two of its mobile phones in 2018. As Huawei continues to produce subversive products, the company will continue to lead the competition in this area.
This trend is also reflected in the companys market share in the UK, which, according to Canalis Consulting, was only slightly below 11% in the first three quarters of 2018 and has been growing steadily over the past five years, the article said.
