Czech government office stops using Huawei mobile phones

He said the company has already shipped more than 10,000 5G base stations.

In February, the heads of six US intelligence agencies told a Senate committee they didn't trust Huawei or its rival ZTE, which is also based in China, and would recommend Americans not use the company's smartphones or other equipment.

Huawei has become the target of US security concerns because of its ties to the Chinese government.

Chinese phone maker Huawei is very committed to proving the world it's not spying for China and has thus prepared $2 billion for cybersecurity investments over the next 5 years. "China's laws, among other things, require private companies residing in China to cooperate with intelligence services, therefore introducing them into the key state systems might present a threat", said NCISA director Dušan Navrátil.

According to Bloomberg News, last week German carrier Deutsche Telekom AG raised the prospect of dropping Huawei, Norway said it's weighing concerns with using suppliers from countries with which there's no security policy co-operation.
