 Sweden has banned Huawei and ZTE equipment in 5g networks and will also remove old equipment


According to foreign media reports, Swedish operators must also remove Huawei and ZTE equipment from the existing core functions before January 1, 2025.

It is reported that the decision was made a few weeks before Swedens auction of 2.3ghz and 3.5GHz 5g spectrum on November 10. Four major Swedish telecom companies, hi3gaccess, net4mobility, teliasverige and teracom, have been approved to participate in the 5g auction.

Foreign media said the Swedish ban could create an opportunity for Huawei and ZTEs competitors, including Swedish telecom giant Ericsson, in 5g.

In addition to Sweden, the UK also banned mobile operators from using Huawei made equipment in new 5g networks in July this year, and asked British companies to remove Huawei equipment by 2027. In addition, France has imposed strict restrictions on the use of Huawei equipment.

Last week, Belgiums two major telecom companies chose to use Nokia and Ericssons devices in 5g networks, while abandoning Huaweis equipment.

In addition, Huawei and ZTE are banned from providing 5g equipment for any 5g network deployment in the United States and Australia.

5g is the next generation cellular technology, and the download speed is said to be 10 to 100 times faster than the current 4glte network. In addition to faster data download and upload speed, 5g technology is expected to cover a wider range, more stable connection.
