Sprint Nextel turned down bids from ZTE and Huawei Technologies because
of U.S. government concerns over possible dangers to national security
from the Chinese vendors building critical infrastructure in the U.S.,
the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
Sprint, the nation's third-largest mobile operator, rejected ZTE and
Huawei's bids to modernize its network even though they were lower than
those of three rival companies, the Journal reported. The other bidders
were Ericsson of Sweden, Samsung Electronics of South Korea and
Alcatel-Lucent, which is based in Paris and incorporates the former U.S.
telecom vendor Lucent.
