People walk past a sign board of Huawei in Shanghai, China June 14, 2018. BT Group, formerly British Telecom, has chose to not only strip Huawei of its core 4G network but also close the door on any future 5G plans.

Recently, Neil McRae, chief architect at British Telecom, said at a telecom event: "Huawei is the only true 5G supplier right now".

A spokesman said that Huawei devices will be removed "from the core of our 3G and 4G networks as part of our network architecture principles in place since 2006".

However, BT will continue to use Huawei's kit in what it considers to be benign parts of the network, such as equipment on masts, FT said.

BT has barred Huawei's equipment from being used in its core 5G mobile network when it goes online in the United Kingdom, the company has confirmed, amid security concerns.

It said the process was to bring the EE networks into line with the rest of its business rather than a change of policy.

He said the company would apply the same principles to its next-generation mobile networks.

"Huawei remains an important equipment provider outside the core network, and a valued innovation partner", he added.

Chris Dawson, subject of The Teacher's Pet podcast, arrested
Mr Dawson told Lynette's family that she needed time away, and he did not report her missing to police for nearly six weeks. It came after Mr Dawson began a relationship in 1980 with his 16-year-old student Joanne Curtis.

Such concerns are front of mind for many just two days after Alex Younger, head of the UK's foreign intelligence agency, MI6, told a crowd of students at St Andrews: "We need to decide the extent to which we are going to be comfortable with Chinese ownership of these technologies and these platforms in an environment where some of our allies have taken quite a definite position".

Huawei has been in Britain for more than 17 years, with its equipment checked and monitored by a special company laboratory overseen by government and intelligence operators.

Additionally, Huawei was excluded by BT from bidding on future contracts regarding 5G network infrastructure, hardware, and equipment.

"Huawei is aware of a range of U.S. government activities seemingly aimed at inhibiting Huawei's business in the United States market", the Chinese firm said earlier this year. EE will be converting mobile spectrum from 3G to 4G.
