Best Buy to dump Huawei’s products
According to some reports, Best Buy to dump Huawei’s products after the US Senate and House Intelligence committees targeted Huawei smartphones over spying concerns earlier this year.
Huawei ready to influence a major break into the US business this year via deals it had agreed with AT&T and Verizon. Once the Intelligence Committee found out about Huawei’s designs, it began reaching Huawei’s accomplices and constraining them to cut ties with the company.
