Huawei launches advertising campaign in UK amid security review

Chinese telecom major Huawei Technologies has reportedly announced the launch of internet campaign and a newspaper to mark two decades of its successful business in the United Kingdom. The company has also expressed its commitment to providing the best equipment to UK’s 5G mobile and full-fibre broadband service providers.

As per sources, Huawei has made the announcement citing a new security review that could possibly prompt the UK government to initiate a ban on Huawei’s 5G network kits. According to a report in the Sunday Times, the Chinese Ambassador to the UK has stated that Beijing has been looking at this matter as a litmus test of Britain as its faithful partner.

For the record, Huawei became well-known in the UK for its remarkable achievement in 2005 when it signed an agreement to upgrade BT’s copper broadband service. In early 2020, the company received the government’s permission to play a role in UK’s 5G mobile networks. The decision stated that the company’s market share would be 35 per cent and it would be debarred from sensitive locations in the networking system.

According to Victor Zhang, the Vice-President of Huawei and the Head of its operations in UK, the present advertising initiative has been launched with a motive to provide people with facts amid all the noise about the company. He has further stated that he hopes the UK government to take an “evidence and fact-based" approach and also warned of huge economic losses if greater connectivity was delayed due to the company’s prohibition.

For the uninitiated, Huawei had apparently avoided U.S. government’s outright ban which was imposed on grounds of national security risk. However, significant new sanctions have been lately placed on the company to limit its access to American computer chip technology.

It is cited to be an implication of these recent sanctions that the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre has decided to proceed with its own security review.
