Huawei willing to accept Swedish government’s terms to end 5G ban


Huawei is apparently ready to accept any terms or requirements that the Swedish government may set on its 5G networking equipment. The company will also be willing to accept any measures to address any other concerns as well to avoid a complete ban in the country.


According to a senior executive from Huawei, the Chinese tech giant is willing to accept any terms after it faced a ban in the region, which also caused a delay in Sweden’s spectrum auction as well. For those unaware, Chinese telecommunications equipment providers Huawei and ZTE faced a ban in Sweden after the country’s telecom regulator PTS banned the use of equipment from both the companies.

. The senior executive further added that the company is “now in the middle of the court process, but we are willing to have pragmatic discussions. I can’t give you a concrete plan, but of course we will fight for our rights.”
