United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May has allowed Chinese telecoms giant Huawei to take part in building the country’s 5G network. Huawei will supply antennas and other “non-core” infrastructure, reported The Telegraph on Tuesday.

British intelligence previously concluded that the risks associated with using Huawei’s equipment in 5G networks can be managed.
