Sweden to tighten telecom operation laws

Sweden aims to tighten telecom component suppliers and operators who don’t meet sufficiently high security standards.

Anders Ygeman, Sweden’s minister for digital development stated, Stockholm wants to tighten regulatory requirement for telecom suppliers and operators. Sweden’s concerns comes in the midst of heightened concerns revolving around network security.

“We want to be able to exclude components, suppliers and operators who do not meet sufficiently high security standards,” said Ygeman.

Countries across the world, including the United States are placing intense scutiny on China’s Huawei, which intelligence sources say is a front for Chinese intelligence and the China’s communist government.

Sweden aims to amend its laws before a spectrum auction for so-called 5G next-generation mobile infrastructure due at the end of 2019.
