The French government has published a decree implementing new legislation on the security of future 5G networks, approved by parliament in July. Enacting what has been described as the "anti-Huawei law' by the press, the prime minister has set out a new authorisation regime with powers to stop any deployment of 5G infrastructure deemed to present a risk to national security. Mobile operators have opposed the new rules and have warned that the uncertainty brought in by the approval system could harm their 5G roll-out strategy.
