Sprint, Softbank: No Huawei in Our Network
LR Mobile News Analysis Dan Jones, Mobile Editor 3/29/2013
Sprint Nextel Inc. and SoftBank Mobile Corp. have reportedly promised law-makers that they won't use Huawei Corp. gear if their merger is approved.
The New York Times reports that Representative Mike Rogers has been told by both Sprint and SoftBank of Japan that they have pledged not to use Huawei equipment currently in Sprint's network. They say they will also replace Huawei products in the Clearwire Corp. network.
Why this matters Clearwire is a major account for Huawei in the U.S. The Chinese vendor was supposed to be a key supplier for the TD-LTE network that Clearwire is deploying.
