BT: If UK expels Huawei too soon, there could be outages

British Telecom CEO Philip Jansen asked the British government on Monday to think about removing China's Huawei from the 5G network, warning that if it happens too fast, it could cause outages and possible security issues.

"If we get to a situation where things need to go very, very fast, then you are into a situation where potential service for 24 million BT Group mobile customers is put into question - outages," Jansen noted.

"Ideally, we would want seven years, and we could probably do it in five," Jansen told BBC radio commenting on the period needed to remove Huawei from the country's 5G network.
