UK accuses Huawei of collusion with the Chinese government

08 October 2020
The company says the report “lacks credibility and is built on opinion rather than fact.”

Thanks for your feedback. I would say your comment is spot on. We all learn from each other.


This is rich coming from the UK government (one of the "5 eyes" of worldwide totalitarian like surveillance over it's cititezens).

Yea sure, China does spy over it's cititezens, but they know it, they dont care. Now Huwei collecting data from their user's phones is nothing new ?? every phone does that.

Take US and their big government data overeach (project PRISM ? snowden leaks ?hello ? ) and authorities working HAND IN HAND with the major tech companies and giving them all their user's private data.

Give me a break, UK is even harder than US in some respectives over their overreach !

Huawei has all but replaced all the old Nokia / Alcatel / Siemens equipment since 3G, even more after the 4G push.

When a reports/news use "Chinese Communist Party" multiple times that's not related to political news you know what it is about. It is the right driving up fear to get votes

All EU Countries will replace Huawei instruments by Nokia within 2021 due to political pressure or otherwise no F35's

To replace what is already built requires extensive funding and planning it takes years to do such a complicated thing as Networks re-construction lf major equipment. It would be stone age if you shut it off immediately, that would be not brave, that would be idiotic

People should stop using Huawei products imidiately, it is obvious China Trojan horse in infiltration of info. China is number one threat of a national security for most of the countries as way have clearly comunicstic approach to rule the world as its fits for them. Most dangerous country right now

"Huawei has been financed by the Chinese government, allowing the company to sell its products at a “ridiculously low price point.”"

Can somebody explain what cheap price point they are talking about?

The P40 Pro+ was over US$1,300 at launch and still over US$1,300. Even the S20 Ultra, which was at in the same price bracket at launch, is now at US$900...even if it was released a month before the P40 Pro+. Huawei flagships haven't been cheap in many years and the funny thing is that without Google Services you would have expected the entire Huawei line to be considerably cheaper.

Just look at the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, a recently released smartphone with an unbelievably sub US$1,000 price tag and it offers more than the Huawei and Samsung flagships with their 120 theme across the main areas....120W charging, 120 refresh rate and 120x Zoom. If anything the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra should cost more than the other two. I still love Huawei flagships though as they are born fast, stay fast...unlike a certain Korean brand who I use to admire so much until they ripped me off.

China in the last 10 years reduced the number of people in absolute poverty terms by 90%. With a 2025 goal of further reducing that population to less than 1%.

China has serious problems but at least stick to your facts when you critique something.

  • LOLO

If Huawei is so great how come they aren't bringing people out of poverty in the very nation were founded in, hm?

Anyone ever thought of that?

Same goes for every single company out there all over the globe...

So what? Can it be said that the US is indirectly supporting the Chinese Communist Party because of the existing trade relations? Since the crusades ended, there has been no more ideological wars. Ideological differences do exist, but ideological wars just bullshit. It's all about money. And unfortunately, both China and the US are invasive countries that are wiping out many other countries. Like a pleco fish.
In my opinion that statement is too hasty for the UK, they should wait for the results of the US presidential election. Because if the elected president has a different political direction who is ready to normalize economic relations with China, then in the future Britain will be alone in facing China. Being a politician should not be naive, must be able to assess the advantages and disadvantages of making statements.
