LONDON (Reuters) - Vodafone (VOD.L) said removing equipment made by Huawei [HWT.UL] from its British network would cost “single figure billions” of pounds, and would be highly disruptive for customers if the government set as short a timeframe as two years.

Andrea Dona, head of networks Vodafone UK, told a committee of lawmakers the operator needed to have a “sensible time scale” of several years to implement any further Huawei restrictions.
