Rip and replace is such a long Huawei to go, UK telcos plead, citing 'blackouts' and 'billion pound' costs: Are Vodafone and BT playing 'Project Fear'?

Using the sanctions that Trump has imposed as a reason not to use Huawei seems a rather poor excuse. Where as no doubt Huawei's growth has been impeded by the sanctions they aren't exactly at risk of going bankrupt. And even if Huawei suffer supply chain shortages then telcos can just buy more Nokia or Ericsson kit to fill the gaps.

Plus with Trump in the Whitehouse you would have more luck spinning a roulette wheel than trying to predict what the orange one is going to do next regarding China. He might not even be in power in another 6 months time if the election doesn't go well so the sanctions may get lift by whoever replaces him.
