The decision is expected to cost around €200m (£169m, $220m) and comes only a week after the British government decided to allow the Chinese telecoms firm and manufacturer a limited role in the rollout of 5G technology across the United Kingdom.
CEO Nick Read stated: “We have now decided as a result of the EU toolbox and the UK government’s decision to take out Huawei from the core.” He added this would have a “very limited financial impact” on its UK operations as Vodafone already complies with the British government’s new measures. ■
