To this end, Verizon and AT & T were due to wear the Huawei Mate 10 Pro earlier this year, but both dropped out at the last minute. There is speculation that both mobile network operators have been asked to resign by order of the US government.
Despite Huawei's initial response to driving forward plans to find transportation companies in the US, the company may have changed its mindset. Recently, Huawei has sent a red slip to five members of the US team, including lobbyist William B. Plummer, who has been with the company for eight years. Plummer's title was Vice President of External Affairs, and his main task was to convince Washington delegates that Huawei had no ties to the Chinese government. But he was unsuccessful; Yesterday, the FCC voted to continue with a rule prohibiting state-subsidized telecommunications companies from using vendors that are considered a threat to national security. And while Huawei was not mentioned by name, it is one of the companies that the US government is wary of.
Although Huawei has not officially admitted anything about its future plans for the US, Huawei's CEO, Yu, said last month that even without a strong presence in the United States, the company could become the largest smartphone maker in the world. With the recent layoffs, the company may have decided that City Hall can not fight it. Or in this case, Capitol Hill.
