According to Reuters, Greenland’s state telecoms operator Tele Greenland has said it will use Ericsson equipment for its 5G rollout instead of Huawei.
“5G is coming to Greenland, but no date has been set for this yet. We do not see Huawei as a possible supplier of (Tele Greenland’s) 5G network,” CEO Kristian Reinert Davidsen told broadcaster KNR.
Ericsson also provided the 4G equipment Tele Greenland currently uses. The news comes on the heels of Norwegian wireless carrier Telenor announcing it would phase out Huawei’s equipment in favor of Ericsson, as well as reports earlier this year that Danish carrier TDC would go with the Swedish company over Huawei.
Huawei is facing continued scrutiny over allegations its equipment provides a way for Beijing to spy on other countries. Despite some high-profile gains, the company has struggled to shake the perception that it poses an ongoing security risk.
