Myanmar Telecom War: Huawei Main Supplier For Telenor And Other Myanmar Telecom Operators

Huawei Technologies has been running into barriers on the western fronts of its global expansion, but fortunately for the world’s largest electronic equipment maker, the emerging Myanmar telecom landscape is practically theirs. Three of the nation's telecom operators, state-owned Myanmar Posts and Telecommunication (MPT), Yatanarpon Teleport (YTP) and the recent telecom license winner Telenor from Norway, have chosen Huawei as their main supplier.
The remaining player in Myanmar’s telecom sector, Qatari company Ooredoo, which won the license along with Telenor, has not announced the name of its supplier, but is currently also negotiating with Huawei, according to the Asian News Network.

Huawei has repeatedly come under fire in Western countries over suspicions of links to the Chinese government and being involved in espionage. Last fall, the U.S. House Intelligence Committee issued an extensive report discouraging American companies from buying Huawei equipment.
Last year, Australia banned the Chinese company from bidding for its national broadband fiber network because of security concerns. Huawei has since denied that it poses any security threat, reported Asian News Net.
