    Huawei and ZTE banned from supplying 5G tech to Australia

    Australia is distancing itself from Huawei and ZTE, imposing a ban much more detrimental to the companies' business than the one the US handed down.

    According to Financial Times and Reuters, the country has banned the Chinese telecoms from supplying local mobile carriers with 5G tech equipment due to national security concerns.

    Huawei has confirmed the move in a statement posted on Twitter, where it also said that it's been "safely and securely deliver[ing] wireless technology in [Australia] for close to 15 years."



    FT says Australia is the first country to explicitly prohibit local carriers from working with the companies -- the US government's ban only covers its personnel, agencies and contractors.

    In a statement, the Australian government said:

    "The involvement of vendors who are likely to be subject to extrajudicial directions from foreign governments that conflict with Australian law, may risk failure by the carrier to adequately protect a 5G network from unauthorised access or interference."

    Under China's laws, companies and organizations are required to assist in its intelligence efforts when asked.

    The country's authorities are clearly concerned about the possibility of the Chinese firms leaving Australia's 5G network vulnerable to infiltration on purpose for espionage purposes. A government official told Reuters that the ban was aimed at Huawei, in particular, probably because it already sent the country an offer to oversee its 5G development and to supply the network's equipment, including base stations and towers.

    Hopefully the EU follows suit and puts another nail in the coffin of this spying arm of the Chinese government.

    LOL. For those that don't know the conservative government is trying to over throw the Prime Minister and in all likelihood completely blow any chance it has of winning the upcoming federal election.

    Well I don't think they had much hope anyway, Turnbull is not at all popular in the conservative base but now it's like a race to the bottom. All that zero charisma Shorten has to do is not fuck it up. Stay tuned!

    We banned Huawei from the NBN as well.

    This was a reasonable action imo.

    This is pretty significant. It’s one thing for the US to take action against China as we have a much stronger hand and are relatively impervious to China’s retaliations. Australia on the other hand has massive economic exposure and wouldn’t do this unless their security concerns were beyond question.

    This is probably Oz telling China to kick rocks with their Pacific military expansion.
