Huawei barred from New Zealand's 5G upgrade

Technology equipment made by the Chinese giant Huawei Technologies Co. will not be used by Spark mobile carrier to upgrade its 5G network in New Zealand, the country's Government Communications Security Bureau decided, citing a "significant network security risk."

Huawei stated that it's disappointed with the decision. The Shenzhen-based, officially privately-held company has previously been involved in building mobile networks in New Zealand.

Australia has issued the same ban on Huawei in August. Later, Australian officials claimed that Chinese espionage services used Huawei to hack a "foreign network." Last week, a report emerged that the United States government is attempting to persuade allies not to use Huawei's equipment due to alleged security risks.
