The Draghi government has authorized Vodafone Italia to use Huawei equipment in its 5G deployment in the country. Sources indicate that restrictions have been placed on remote maintenance interventions by the Chinese supplier.
The Government has already set the date for the start of the decisive 700 MHz spectrum auction. It will be before July 21, as indicated in the tender specifications, published by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation in the BOE .
Belgium finalizes the public consultation on the 5G spectrum auction, which will take place in early 2022 and plans to raise 800 million euros. The delay is partly attributed to disagreement between the federal and regional governments over the distribution of the funds raised.
The Estonian subsidiary of the operator Telia will shut down its 3G network in the country at the end of 2023. Currently only 1% of its data traffic and a third of its voice traffic circulate over its 3G network.
Vivo, Telefónica's operation in Brazil, will turn to Mavenir, Nokia and Oracle for the core of its future 5G SA (autonomous) network. In this way, the operator disassociates itself from Huawei, which currently provides the equipment for 65% of its networks.
