Britain extended the deadline to remove equipment and services from China's Huawei in core network functions to December 31, 2023, from the original January 28, 2023, after consulting with the company and telecom operators, JW Insights learned from Reuters.

The UK government said the deadline to remove all Huawei gear from Britain's 5G networks by the end of 2027 remained unchanged.

It also extended a requirement to limit Huawei to 35% of the full fiber access network by three months to October 31, 2023.

Britain decided to ban Huawei and other vendors it deemed a high-security risk from its 5G networks in 2020 following pressure from the United States.
