A statement will be made on Tuesday, 14th July 2020.
BT's chief has said it would be "impossible" to remove Huawei from the whole of the UK's telecoms infrastructure before 2030.
The government is expected to say that no new 5G equipment from the Chinese firm can be installed after 2021, and that all its existing 5G kit must be removed later - possibly by 2025.
But it is unclear if similar deadlines will also be given for Huawei's other mobile and broadband gear.
BT's EE network uses Huawei's equipment to provide its 2G, 4G and 5G networks.
In addition, its Openreach division uses Huawei to provide the "access technology" in its exchanges to provide fibre to the premises (FTTP) broadband - effectively converting electrical signals into light-based ones.
Huawei also provides about 70,000 of Openreach's roadside cabinets, which are used to provide fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) broadband connections. However, BT does not expect to be ordered to replace these, as they will be superseded in time by FTTP technology.
Mr Jansen also repeated a warning first given by his firm last week, saying that "outages would be possible" if BT is forced to pull out Huawei's 5G kit too quickly.
He added that it would still need to install software provided by Huawei for some time to come.
