Ericsson CEO criticises Swedish regulator's ban on Huawei from 5G networks

Wednesday 18 November 2020 | 15:13 CET | News
Ericsson chief executive Borje Ekholm has criticised a Swedish regulatory decision to ban Huawei from  5G telecoms networks, according to the Financial Times. He told the FT that such a move restricts free competition and trade and delay deployment of the new technology. Huawei is appealing against the ban, which was made last month following advice from Sweden's armed forces and security services who accused China of "extensive intelligence gathering and theft of technology".
