Huawei gets another shock as Canada Banned Huawei From its 5G Network. Canada is not the first country to have suspicions about Huawei. So, keep reading to uncover all the news; let’s have a look!

Canada Bans Huawei From its 5 Network


The forecast number of 5G subscribers by 2025 will be 3 Billion, and with such rapid development globally, Canada banning Huawei is a big step. The reasons are security concerns that resulted from Government reviews which took around four years.

On May 19, 2022, the Federal Government announced that it’s banning the use of Huawei and ZTE equipment in Canada. They said that we reviewed the company security by our independent security agencies and after consulting our closest allies.

As a result, we faced pressure from the countries and our opposition to banning the Chinese company for serious security reasons. As a result, Canada will no longer deal with Chinese telecommunications firms participating in Canada’s deployment of a 5G network.

Will the ban Affect Canada’s Relationship With China?


With so many myths about 5G, Canada’s decision has made it a trending topic. So, let’s see how this will affect both countries. The rift between Canada and China started long ago, in 2018. 

Then, Canada conducted the arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in Canada under the command of the USA. As a result, Chinese authorities arrested Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. The issue was settled in September 2021, when all three were released.

For now, it’s too early to predict how it will affect the relationship between the two countries. But, the Chinese are criticizing this move. The Chinese foreign minister said this move has no evidence and violates the marketing economy and free trade and rules. 

China has covered its 341 cities with a 5G network which is the maximum. With such great development, it was a daring move. Not only this, but Canada has planned to end all the contracts with Huawei for 4G networks till 2027. 

What is 5G?

5G is the latest technology for wireless communication, which will have amazing speed and help many sectors to automate. However, faster communication and higher speed also welcome hidden security challenges when moving to 5G; precautionary steps are important.

5G can revolutionize by aiding AI, smart home appliances, the transport industry, etc. It’s a very flexible tech and allows billions of devices to connect. It’s launched and in progress in many nations.
