(Reuters) – Spark New Zealand <SPK.NZ> said on Monday that China’s Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] was still among three companies on its preferred list of equipment suppliers, as the telecom and digital services provider announced 5G roll-out plans.

Spark’s 5G roll-out ran into controversy when New Zealand’s intelligence agency rejected its proposal to use equipment from Huawei, citing national security risks.
