Unlike the United States, Britain has been using Huawei technology in its systems for the past 15 years, the US had threatened to limit intelligence sharing with London in the event of Huawei winning a UK role.
US President Donald Trump has already ordered American firms to cease doing business with market leader Huawei and urged allies to follow suit.
Trump´s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday declared that Britain faced a “momentous decision”.
London´s decision, following a meeting of the National Security Council chaired by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, came shortly after Brussels said it would allow Huawei a limited 5G role in the European Union.
“We want world-class connectivity as soon as possible but this must not be at the expense of our national security,” Britain´s Digital Secretary Nicky Morgan said in reference to high-speed fifth-generation networks that offer almost instantaneous and reliable data transfer.
“High-risk vendors never have been and never will be in our most sensitive networks,” she insisted.

Huawei is reassured by the UK government´s confirmation that we can continue working with our customers to keep the 5G roll-out on track.
This evidence-based decision will result in a more advanced, more secure and more cost-effective telecoms infrastructure that is fit for the future.
Huawei is widely viewed as providing the most advanced technology of the world such as self-driving cars and remotely operated factory Robots.
