Thailand to trial Huawei 5G

Thailand has bucked an attempt by the United States to block Huawei by letting the Chinese telecom giant trial 5G in the country.Following the lead of the US, several Western countries have either stopped or are considering stopping Huawei from providing 5G network equipment.

In Thailand’s instance, Huawei will be establishing a 5G lab in Chonburi, alongside other vendors.

This is a breakthrough for Huawei, which has been a key driving force in the development of 5G technology.

According to a Reuters report, the move does not necessarily translate to approval to provide equipment for Thailand’s eventual 5G rollout.
