(Telecompaper) French operator Bouygues Telecom said that it would call for the government to put a compensation scheme in place, in a scenario where the company faced a de facto ban on Huawei’s equipment. In a recent senate hearing, board president Olivier Roussat explained that in the US market the ongoing debate around risky telecom suppliers had already acknowledged the need to award funds for the replacement of equipment in mobile networks. He argued that the same rationale for damage compensation would apply in France, where operators are still waiting to understand the consequences of the tightened procurement rules implemented by the government at the end of last year.
