I imagine this is going to come with a whopping great price tag... if memory serves it was estimated at several billion - nevermind replacing it with the more expensive (and substandard) nordic stuff.
Say what you will of the firm and its potential to snoop on people (i rather doubt most conversations would be overly enthusing though) but this does have the unmistakable whiff of bowing to pressure from Washington..

Intriguing times in the new cold war.

Do Conservative voters believe we should increase taxes to pay for this recklessness or should we borrow money and put the burden on future generations?



Next up: was allowing a company owned by the totalitarian Chinese government to get involved in building our nuclear power plants a smart idea?

I always found that a rather droll thing... Very naughty and bigly bad having them own our mobile infrastructure but totally cool them owning a bloody nuclear plant of all things :lol:
I mean, i have no issue with the government going off on a sinophobic tangent but when its so unevenly applied and costly, well..

The telecoms companies should just make a point by turning off all Huawei kit currently in place for one day, just the show the scale of the mess caused by the British Government.

I think the vast majority of Britain supports the decision to remove Huawei from British telecommunications. I guess you can't put a price on national security and we'd be risking a lot of 'unknowns' for the pursuit of faster internet!!
