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'?

> we voted for brexit

I bloody well didn't..

TBH having seen a street cabinet open and full of Huawei kit, I understand the "plight" of the telcos..

However, for one I don't see what boycotting Huawei achieves - There are hundreds of other Chinese controlled brands out there that will still undercut any NSA-approved device on cost.

And two, I have yet to be convinced of the necessity of 5G whatsoever. WTF is the point of it. I have heard political mouthpieces say that it will "power the internet of things revolution". Well what if I don't want an internet of thongs?

Seriously, why the hell do we need 5G when we have fibre-optic cables?
