The Government of the Dominican Republic has announced that it would be excluding Huawei from 5G networks in the country. The announcement was made through the Dominican Institute of Telecommunications (INDOTEL).
According to a LoopJamaica report, the specifications of the international tender for the implementation of 5G networks will not be excluding the Chinese telecommunications giant. The President of the republic, Luis Abinader, added that the implementation of the 5G network aims to boost opportunities for the citizens of the nation through connectivity. Furthermore, the newer and faster bandwidth also brings a ‘more modern and inclusive health system and streamlined public spending.’
The President further added that “We are looking for a more competitive, dynamic, more connected Dominican Republic. The implementation of the 5G network will be a great step in the history of the country’s telecommunications development, which will translate into a profound digital transformation. The winning company must implement a 5G-infrastructure deployment with national coverage at the end of five years.”
For those unaware, Huawei has been facing various allegations related to national security from government’s like the US, the UK, and other regions in Europe as well. Although, the Chinese company has actively denied these accusations and has even stated that its equipment will provide necessary guarantees to respect the national sovereignty and data protection of the Dominican Republic. The selection process is scheduled for September 2021 and the 5G network will be deployed sometime in November 2021.
