Slower and more expensive

This is the main point of the filing and will hit the telcos where they worry the most; their bank accounts. The argument here is simple; without Huawei as a potential vendor, competition is limited, therefore prices go north. The more expensive projects become, the greater the due diligence which will slow down the process, and the fewer which can be run at the same time. Without Huawei, 5G deployment slows down.
