Huawei praises 4G airwave clearance

Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications company, has welcomed news that the UK will be completing its 4G airwave clearance today.

Founded in 1988, Huawei overtook Ericsson in 2012 as the largest telecommunications equipment maker in the world, and says that the 4G/LTE airwave clearance is "great news".

A spokeperson for the company told CBR: "4G is not only vital to consumer internet usage but, as more and more business is done from mobile devices, 4G will play a big part in the long-term competitiveness of UK economy. As such, Ofcom’s completion of the 4G/LTE airwave clearance is great news and to be welcomed.

"Mobile working is increasing and there is potential for more, for example, many businesses still don’t have structured mobile device management practises, but such processes will be key if mobile, and 4G/LTE, is to fulfil its potential. If mobile and broadband providers, infrastructure providers and businesses collaborate, then 4G and, moreover, mobile working, will be able to realise its potential in the UK economy."
