France will not exclude China's Huawei from 5G rollout: minister
PARIS (Reuters) - France will not follow the United States and exclude China's Huawei from its next-generation 5G network, but will have the power to vet all equipment makers for any potential security threat, a minister said on Monday.
French telecoms regulator Arcep kicked off the long-awaited sale of 5G spectrum on Thursday, ending months of intense debate between the country's telecoms operators and authorities on how to best deploy the new ultra-fast mobile internet technology.
"We do not target one equipment maker," Junior Economy Minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher told BFM Business television on Monday. "There is no exclusion."
"There are three equipment makers active in France. Huawei has a 25% market share, there is also Nokia and Ericsson. Samsung is not active yet in France but is interested by 5G," said Pannier-Runacher.
"The government will not exclude anyone. We are not following the position of the United States," she added. "We will proceed on a case by case basis
Telecoms operators will have to seek permission from the prime minister for their 5G network projects, and receive clearance based on national security considerations.

Why do you arrive so late to the party, France? Spain already has Huawei's 5G in most cities, working perfectly.

Interestingly, US accused Huawei spying but show no evidence. However, the US government is spying on the world leaders. That is the fact, in case you don't know ask R. Snowden.

France has large Nokia product development presence. It makes sense for France to support EU telecom equipment maker Nokia.

France, Germany and other countries have to do what is right for them and not bow to the will or overblown propaganda from the US. China is way ahead in 5G and that's a fact.

Fail to convince the closest allies shows the accusations are just as fake as democracy.

And Germany has made it clear they will vet China's Huawei to the point of exclusion. Bet France is only saying they won't exclude them, but will vet them out in the end.
