Huawei, the Chinese telecoms company that is leading a global race to build 5G mobile networks, has revealed that all of the 40 commercial contracts it won for the development of 5G infrastructure are outside mainland China, said the Financial Times.
Huawei said 23 of its 5G contracts were from Europe, 10 from the Middle East, six from Asia and one from Africa.
“Until today, only one commercial contract for 5G is from China, and that’s in Hong Kong,” said Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei’s 5G product line. “In the mainland, although we’ve done a lot of trials . . . these are not commercial contracts.”
