Huawei's Consumers May Face Setback due to AT&T Deal Breakdown

Huawei's Consumers May Face Setback due to AT&T Deal Breakdown

No further explanation was given by Huawei regarding the role, but media outlets like CNET suggested that Gadot was basically appointed as the firm's brand ambassador for the U.S. market.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro will still be available as an unlocked device in the United States, and it's going to be up for preorder starting on February 4 and hit the shelves on February 18 with a $799 price tag.

According to the Journal, Union Wireless of Mountain View, Wyoming - with 50,000 customers in five Western states - turned to Huawei four years ago after its previous equipment vendor fell behind schedule on a critical network upgrade. But the plan was dismissed over political pressure from USA lawmakers who saw Huawei as a security threat.

Huawei is reportedly trying to secure a new deal with the AT&T rival Verizon, but political pressure may mean the firm will struggle to find a new United States partner.

Verizon is also under the same pressure as AT&T, according to Android Police.

The letter to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, which was signed by 18 lawmakers, noted concerns about Chinese companies in the USA telecommunications industry.

What's a poor smartphone maker to do when its latest grand plans for US distribution fall through?

Huawei might still decide to cancel its Super Bowl commercial as things have not been worked out as planned for the launch of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. More big loss is consumers.

Support from USA carriers has been an issue for Chinese smartphone brands. He then proceeded to explain that if Huawei products weren't readily available, it's a "big loss" for not only the company itself and carriers but also for the consumers "because they don't have the best choice for devices".

This isn't the first time United States politicians have suspected Huawei of being a security threat, though they have never offered proof in public. At the time, Huawei hit out at global "protectionism". The company was founded more than two decades ago by a former engineer from the country's People's Liberation Army, but Huawei has denied repeatedly that it has any ties to the government.

Yet Huawei appeared shut out of the United States six years ago after congressional investigators determined its equipment could be used for spying or crippling the USA telecommunications network, the Journal reported.
