to buy Huawei equipment
US government has asked European providers and governments to no longer purchase Huawei network equipment, reports The Wall Street Journal. Companies and governments can also get money from the American government to buy other equipment.

The government of the United States has subsidies for the purchase of equipment from non-Chinese companies, reports The Wall Street Journal . In doing so, it tries to persuade companies and governments in other countries to make other choices. Networks in the Benelux also use network equipment from the Chinese manufacturer.

The US government is afraid that the Chinese government will be able to use Huawei equipment for future 5G networks for espionage and cyber attacks. For example, the Chinese government could shut down communication services via backdoors, the US government fears.

The Wall Street Journal only speaks of Germany, Italy and the Asian country of Japan, but also in the Netherlands, network equipment from Huawei has been given political attention in recent weeks. On Thursday , politicians pointed out the risk of spying on network equipment from a Chinese maker of C2000 police equipment and the government is ‘very alert’ to espionage via 5G equipment, the NOS reported a few weeks ago. Huawei is the global leader in mobile network equipment. Also the Chinese ZTE is also a big player. Other major players are the Finnish Nokia and the Swedish Ericsson.
