I thought Huawei was banned from NBN too.

Except that it seems every CPE router than NBN provides is a Huawei something. An NBN specific one at that, so if it dies, the customer has to go crawling back to their ISP or NBN to get a replacement, because they cannot buy one retail.

If the ban truely was about security, surely a smaller box per person to be spied on would be preferable to trying to do it by the thousands on the larger core boxes.
