Singapore’s communication minister said the government never excluded any company from being vendors for the nationwide rollout of high-speed 5G technology, and is satisfied with the outcome of its telecom operators’ selection.

Singapore’s biggest telecom operators chose Ericsson AB and Nokia Oyj as their main 5G network providers, leaving China’s Huawei Technologies Co. with less significant contracts after the city-state gave final approval for the rollout of nationwide 5G coverage Wednesday. Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. chose Ericsson while a group that includes StarHub Ltd. opted for Nokia.
