  • EE abandons launch of Huawei 5G phones amid US ban

As for EE's 5G plans, the first launch cities will be London, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Cardiff, though coverage will be restricted to landmark areas for leisure and commerce such as London's Wembley Stadium and Birmingham's Bullring. Pricing starts at a fairly eye-watering 54 pounds per month for the lowest 5G plan with 10GB of data.

O2, however, has confirmed that it will continue to stock Huawei 5G phones despite security concerns.

NTT Docomo also announced it would stop taking pre-orders of Huawei handsets scheduled for release mid-2019, but gave no details on why it was doing so or whether it was postponing the actual sale of new releases from the Chinese smartphone maker. "This is a temporary measure while uncertainty exists regarding new Huawei 5G devices", a spokesperson said.

However, BT-owned EE joined rival Vodafone in pulling a Huawei smartphone from its 5G launch line-up because of uncertainty about support by Google's Android after a US move to block the Chinese firm's access to its technology.

EE said it will initially launch in six cities.

"Being first-to-market with 5G matters little to consumers, but is clearly an important honour for BT".

Meanwhile, the British firm ARM, which designs processors used in most mobile devices, is also said to be set to suspend ties with Huawei.

EE has said it was already removing Huawei networking equipment from it core network.

"There is no current government guidance to suggest we should not use Huawei, but if the guidance changes we will reconsider. That will be disruptive but there are other people that provide equipment", he said.

The 5G revolution is now fully underway with EE confirming when it will switch this superfast signal on across parts of the UK.

"There is little interoperability between vendors, which means it is hard to deploy non-Huawei 5G equipment alongside existing Huawei 4G equipment".

The company, which makes a wide range of devices for smartphones, cars and factory automation equipment, declined to comment on which components are subject to the ban and where they are produced.

Ten more towns and cities will get services in 2020, including Aberdeen, Cambridge, Derby, Gloucester, Peterborough, Plymouth and Portsmouth.

Now, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G will lead the line-up, with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G to follow.
