US wants to help Ericsson, Nokia and others develop 5G alternatives

The US government wants to lend its support to all areas of the 5G ecosystem in a bid to decrease the influence of China on mobile technology. To date, Washington’s efforts have been focused on lobbying its allies to ban Huawei from their 5G rollouts on national security grounds. American officials have suggested that intelligence sharing could be limited with nations who allow the company to play a role in deployment. This course of action has been pursued despite Huawei’s frequent denial of any allegations and the failure by the US to produce any evidence to supports its claims.
