Exclusion decision by Huawei against the Swedish Telecommunications Authority

The Swedish telecommunications authority PTS will appeal against a court decision against its plan to exclude the Chinese telecommunications supplier Huawei from its 5G networks.

PTS halted 5G spectrum auctioning on Monday after a court suspended parts of its earlier ruling following the UK’s ban on Huawei devices from 5G networks, citing national security risks.

The Chinese company appealed PTS’s decision to expel it, saying it wanted a court to examine whether it had been taken in accordance with the law.

“PTS will appeal the decision of the administrative court on the suspension in the next instance,” said the regulatory authority in a statement on Friday.

The auctions were originally scheduled to start this week and would have benefited Nokia and Ericsson as PTS asked the participating companies to remove Huawei and ZTE devices from their infrastructure.

PTS said in Friday’s statement that it would await a decision from the administrative appeals court to decide how to proceed with auctions.

Huawei told Reuters on Monday that it had no plan for further legal action and was waiting for a constructive dialogue with the Swedish authorities.

Certain parts of PTS’s decision before the upcoming 5G auctions will not apply until further notice, the Stockholm Administrative Court said in a decision that would enable Huawei to participate in the upcoming Swedish 5G spectrum auction.

Huawei currently has no plan for further legal action and is waiting for a constructive dialogue with the Swedish authorities, Kenneth Fredriksen, Huawei’s executive vice president for Central Eastern Europe and the Nordic region, told Reuters.

“We are ready to work fully together on any future requirements you have as a supplier of 5G devices so that we can become a certified supplier,” he said.
