Does Google's suspending Huawei’s access affect RW phones?

You’ve read the news story: Google has suspended Huawei’s access to updates of its Android operating system. Huawei will continue to have access to the version of the Android operating system available through the open source licence that is free to anyone who wishes to use it. But, according to Reuters who first reported the ban on Sunday, Google will stop providing technical support and collaboration for Android and Google services.
DOES THIS AFFECT OUR USE OF RW ANDROIDS?

Republic Wireless only offered one Huawei branded phone (Huawei Ascend 5W). It’s old enough that it wasn’t going to get any Android OS updates anyway. Net effect, zero.
