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