We do not anticipate any disruption.

On 14 July the Government announced that Huawei equipment will be removed from the UK’s 5G networks by the end of 2027 following the introduction of further US sanctions against Huawei in May 2020. The process by which mobile operators comply with the Government’s decision on Huawei is a matter for the operators themselves.
