The big fight between Huawei and Donald Trump's government has been going on for a long time. Having also spread throughout Europe. However, it seems that the Chinese manufacturer has just 'conquered' an ally on the old continent.
Vodafone CEO said during a press conference at MWC 2019 that Huawei's ban on 5G equipment in Europe will be a serious mistake for all countries.
Nick Read explains that focusing this type of equipment on only two companies (Nokia and Ericsson) will be a risky position. For companies as well as countries' infrastructures.

Read goes even further, and says that decisions to force operators to exchange Huawei equipment entail too high costs. For both companies and their customers. The CEO of Vodafone has no doubt that this cost increase will delay the deployment of 5G networks in Europe by at least 2 years.
As has been said countless times. The big problem is related to Huawei's alleged proximity to the Chinese government. Donald Trump and the US government have repeatedly accused Huawei of providing private information to the Chinese government.
Were it not for Trump's initiative to try to persuade his allies to take similar steps. Huawei would probably continue to have no problems in Europe.
Still, information has already emerged about a study of the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) in the United Kingdom, where they came to the conclusion that these alleged security issues could be resolved cordially.
Finally, it is possible that once officially unveiled, this study may resolve Huawei's difficult position. At least as regards the implementation of 5G infrastructures in Europe.
