Huawei May Build U.S. Cellular's LTE Network
According to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, Chinese telecom gear maker Huawei is among the finalists being considered by U.S. Cellular to build its 4G Long Term Evolution network. Huawei also indicated that it is talking to local, state, and federal agencies regarding the next-generation public safety network. The company has hit yet another snag, however, as a handful of U.S. senators and representatives have sent a letter to the president urging him to enact legislation that would prevent Huawei from selling telecom gear in the U.S. entirely. The letter also wants to prevent Huawei from receiving any government subsidies, and wants all government agencies to state whether or not they've purchased Huawei-made equipment with federal funds. Huawei has run afoul of U.S. lawmakers before, who claim that Huawei has ties to the Chinese government. The Journal's sources say U.S. Cellular is set to make its decision in the next few weeks.

With a name like Huawei you wonder if they have chinese ties?
Great...give the chinese a way to easily drop in on us.....
We certainly don't want them having access to any US communication network.
Do they even have enough spectrum?
However, does Huawei have a good track record for telecom equipment? They make sub-par smartphones, hopefully they do better with their telecom.
Huawei is more of a telecom network builder than a phone builder. They have build some of the bigge...
