We asked, you told us: Most believe Huawei did nothing wrong (Latest version)

Huawei had a lot rough two weeks. After being placed on the US entity list, big companies like it Google, Intel, Qualcomm, armand others said they would cut links with Huawei if it was banned by government.

The company currently has permit to work with US companies in mid-Augustbut it can easily fall out before America's government reverses its decision. So us decided to ask you, do you think Huawei deserves his ban? Here's what to say.

Do you think the ban on Huawei is fair?

! function (e, t, s, i) {var n = "InfogramEmbeds", o = e.getElementsByTagName ("script")[0].?, D = / ^ http: / key (e.location) "http:": "https:"; As (/ ^ / {2} / key (i) && (i = d + i), window[n]&& window[n].initialized) window[n].process && window[n].process (); other than (! e.getElementById (s)) {var r = e.createElement ("script"); r.async = 1, = s, r.src = i, o.parentNode .insertBefore (r, o)}} (document, 0, "icon-synchronize", "https: //e.infogram. com / js / dist / embed loader-min.js ");


As you can see, over 50 percent of the 7,000 readers have voted this week's poll believe that Huawei does not deserve its current ban. Look at the comments, it seems most like this because the US doesn't have to provide evidence to the public, proving that Huawei is a national security threat.

Several commentaries shared how they could see why the US government could prevent Huawei from providing 5G infrastructure due to fears of foreign interference, but blocking the entire company is unfair. In their opinions, consumer products such as smartphones and laptops should not be a problem.

Despite these results, 23 percent of voters believe that Huawei deserves its current ban. According to them, Huawei has long history of conflict with foreign countries and has too strong ties with the Chinese government.

Striking comments

Here are some of the best comments from last week's polls explaining why they voted the way they voted:

  • Only if we get evidence that they are actually spying
  • I think in the big scheme of it all, it's fair. However, I think the rationale they have given is pretty deceptive.
  • Edward Snowden had more evidence that the US government was speculating on Americans than they had told Huawei. If China really wants to spy, they will infiltrate other brands manufactured in China, as it will be even more slanting.
    Editor's choice
  • I don't see that Android has anything to do with national security. Instead, I see it's a dirty way to block the growth of a company.
  • As a Huawei phone user, I don't agree with the ban on his phone business. If the actual communication infrastructure is in danger, I don't know but forbid that part, not the phones and laptops. Trump has already said that when a trade agreement comes, Huawei is likely to be part of it, so that it, apart from the communication bit, looks like a negotiating tactic to me
  • None of us know enough of the details to have a valid opinion. It is said that a Chinese company, subsidized by the government, claiming that all that government calls for, will not be the right partner to build our communications infrastructure.

It's for this week, everyone. As always, thank you for the voice, thank you for the comments, and don't forget to let us know what you thought of the results below.
