German minister Seehofer: quickly building 5G is not possible without Huawei

Realizing a 5G network in Germany quickly is only possible if there is cooperation with the Chinese Huawei, thinks the German Interior Minister.

Without the technology of the Chinese company, it is difficult to roll out a new telecom network, says Minister Horst Seehofer in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine.

If Huawei somehow happened to be avoided from the development of a system, that would cause long periods of postponement, the pastor said. “I don’t see that we can realize a 5G network in Germany in the short term without a contribution from Huawei,” says Seehofer.
