Huawei ban could cause “phone blackout” in UK, operators warn

As much as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has already decided that the country should remove Huawei 5G equipment, everything indicates that the mission will not be that easy. This is because the main operators on the island have already issued an important alert.

In a letter sent to the British parliament, operators claim that the forced removal of Huawei equipment could lead the country to a telephone “blackout”. The situation may become even more unsustainable and worrying, since London wants the entire operation to be completed in six months.

Vodafone and BT also informed parliamentarians that forcing the withdrawal of Chinese devices on 4G it would be even more problematic. In some cases, entire regions in the UK would be left without a telephone signal for a few months or even years.

Another problem listed by companies is the financial one. This is because the removal of any and all equipment from Huawei can lead to operators to lose “billions of pounds” or even a bankruptcy situation. Therefore, companies ask the government to exercise caution.

Andrea Dona, head of Vodafone in the United Kingdom, went straight to the point and warned British consumers of the chaos that can happen in a scenario where London decides to act without listening to the segment:

if the guidance becomes more stringent, it will have an immediate effect delaying the deployment of our 5G. In addition, it will also have cost implications and will focus our investment on removing existing equipment rather than buying new ones for 5G. If current guidelines were enforced and more restrictions were imposed, we would need to spend billions to change our current infrastructure.
