    Last time I read about this, it was mainly between US and China but now British PM comes into the picture with his concerns. A few sides will make accusations and be skeptical while Huawei will keep denying the allegations. Who's right? Who's wrong? I don't know. Then there's the interesting aspect of economic protectionism factor to be taken into account too. Here's a few other articles:

    Unfortunately, this drama will never end. Not in my lifetime I suppose.

    P.S. Using Huawei mobile broadband dongle (thanks to my ISP). Instead of using the provided setup, I decided to use Vodafone Mobile Broadband software instead as it supports limited user accounts.

    Its very hypocritical especially when we hear such things as NSA has direct access to tech giants' systems for user data all at the tax payers expense, or The U.S. government has become the biggest buyer of malware, according to a Reuters special report, which is leading to growing concerns in the technology and intelligence industry. I live in the south pacific where there is a lot of arge barge going on as usa tries to move in and isolate china in there own backyard. Perhaps it does not allow communications to be so easily accessed with equipment Huawei provide. In new zealand where Huawei and telecom cooperate there was much interference in an effort to provent this happening and sadly this mostly from the usa.
