Last week, during his speech in London, Turnbull gave a firm warning about the 5G technology of Huawei. And he urged Britain to boycott the company’s telecommunications equipment as it can lead to serious national security risk.

On March 7th, Huawei’s director of corporate & public affairs for Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, Jeremy Mitchell, posted a long blog post on Huawei Australia Hub to address this matter. In his post, Mitchell said “Australia will pay” as a response to what Turnbull had said.

He criticized the former Prime Minister for actually believing in the “myth” that the 5G network would increase the national security risk. Mitchell wrote:

Australia was the first to ban the Chinese phone maker’s 5G equipment. According to Mitchell, by banning Huawei, Australian telecommunications operators will have to invest more money into building their own networks with underdeveloped technology.
