However, Huawei's statement on the BT/EE decision downplayed its significance, reading: "Huawei has been working with BT for nearly 15 years".
BT bought EE for £12.5bn in 2016, which used Huawei equipment in its core 3G and 4G mobile networks at the time, but has since been working on a programme to remove the hardware.

Mobile edge computing could be a major opportunity for telecom operators in the 5G era, allowing them to reduce the signaling delay on data networks and provide new types of service. Huawei later supplied components for BT's national rollout of fiber optic broadband.
But BT's decision to also join the number of countries and firms restricting the use of Huawei is another serious blow for the world's largest telecom equipment maker.
Huawei will no longer be at the "control plane" of BT's network, instead restricted to the "periphery", as the United Kingdom telecoms company continues to utilise its masts and antennas.
In a written statement, BT said: "In 2016, following the acquisition of EE, we began a process to remove Huawei equipment from the core of our 3G and 4G mobile networks, as part of network architecture principles in place since 2006".
