The allegations in the report were denied by the manufacturer despite comments made by former CIA chief Michael Hayden. The latter claims to have seen hard evidence that Huawei has spied on behalf of China, its home country. AT&T and Verizon have not made any comments about Huawei at all.

Breaking the Apple-Samsung duopoly in the US will be 'prohibitively difficult' for Huawei

If you look at the latest US mobile market share data, two brands pop up – Apple and Samsung – which together account for the vast majority of phones sold on US carriers.
