Ericsson partners with BT Group to provide 5G radio equipment in the UK

On Wednesday, Ericsson (ERICb.ST) reported that the telecommunications company had been selected by BT Group (BT.L) to supply 5G radio equipment in London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, and other major cities in the United Kingdom.

In July, the British government announced that it would ban Huawei Technologies (002502) in the UK until the end of 2027.

“By deploying 5G in these key areas, we are yet again demonstrating our technology leadership in population-dense and high-traffic locations,” Ericsson’s President and Chief Executive Officer Borje Ekholm said in a statement.

He added that Ericsson’s win would strengthen the firm’s business and relationship with BT Group.

The Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company stated that it would manage almost 50% of BT’s 5G traffic and modernize BT’s existing 2G and 4G radio networks.
