Chinese smartphone maker Huawei and ZTE handed 5G network ban in Australia



Chinese smartphone maker Huawei says the Australian government has banned it from providing 5G technology for the country's wireless networks.

 
It said fellow communications firm ZTE had also been banned, both reportedly because of national security concerns.


"This is a extremely disappointing result for consumers," the company said on Twitter.


Faster data download and upload speeds are promised with 5G, which is the next stage of mobile internet connectivity.


Wider coverage and more stable connections than current 4G technology are also highlighted as benefits.
