UK names ex-BT boss to lead task force on opening up telecoms market

LONDON, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Britain said a former boss of BT would lead a task force to advise on opening up the country’s telecoms market after China’s Huawei was banned from participating in the UK’s 5G rollout earlier this year.

Former BT CEO Ian Livingston will help create a strategy to boost competition in the sector and build a more diverse telecoms supply chain, said a statement from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on Wednesday. (Reporting by Sarah Young; editing by Stephen Addison)
