Huawei is obviously ready to accept any terms or requirements that the Swedish government may set for its 5G network equipment. The company will also be willing to accept any measures to solve other problems so as not to impose a comprehensive ban on the country.
A Huawei executive said that the Chinese technology giant is willing to accept any terms after the ban in the region, which also caused the Swedish spectrum auction to be postponed.
For those who don’t know, Chinese telecommunications equipment providers Huawei and ZTE are facing a Swedish ban after Sweden’s telecommunications regulator PTS banned the use of the two companies’ equipment.
However, since then, Huawei has managed to win the court’s injunction and is even awaiting an appeal from PTS.
Huawei’s executive vice president Kenneth Fredriksen said in a statement to Reuters: “We are even willing to meet extraordinary requirements, for example, if we want to, for example, set up our equipment in Sweden, Testing facilities.” The senior manager further added that the company “is currently in court proceedings, but we are willing to have pragmatic discussions. I cannot give you a specific plan, but of course we will fight for our rights.”
