Jeremy Mitchell's piece sounds to me like political rhetoric with a rather theoretical reference to securing edge networks.  But the real problem is the possibility of malware incorporated in 5G infrastructure which might allow foreign governments to spy on users, especially when both ends come from the same source, or to interfere with network operation.

Spyware in exported network equipment isn't anything new, it's been happening for 20 years.  But I think the potential increase in vulnerability with increasing organisational complexity is a worry.
