Donald Trump has officially banned Huawei equipment in the US
President of the United States Donald Trump has signed the bill banning the use of government funds for purchasing Huawei tech. The legislation also bans the purchase of equipment from any companies, who are considered to be a threat for national security.
The Federal Communications Commission will also launch a programme for smaller data and communications providers. The companies will be able to request financial help for the removal and replacement of the banned equipment. The fund has been established to facilitate the replacements in the remote areas.
Huawei has been permitted to continue doing business until May 15. The company has been disputing the band and refused to acknowledge connections to the Chinese government and accusations of data theft.
