Huawei refrained from participating in Australia’s broadband project

China is considered to be the major source of cyber attack that are taking place across the world. In a recent move to condemn such attacks, Australia has refrained Chinese telecom giant Huawei from tendering for a mega nationwide broadband contract that is valued at USD 38 bn.

National Broadband Network is being eyed as ‘backbone of Australia’s information infrastructure’ which will provide very high speed broadband to the home users.

Australia’s prime minister has termed the decision as prudent.

Some people say that Australian government took this decision because founder of world’s second largest telecommunication giant Ren Zhengfei was in Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

On the other hand, Huawei’s spokesperson has said that company will continue to work with other telecommunication companies in Australia and hopefully it will pay its role in the lay down of NBN.
