Huawei has had carrier deals with AT&T and Verizon fall through in recent months, with rumblings that the US government encouraged the carriers to pass on the Chinese electronics giant. This was confirmed on Tuesday.

FBI Director Chris Wray told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that the FBI was "deeply concerned" about the risks posed by Huawei and ZTE, Chinese companies that sell both phones and telecommunications equipment.

"We're deeply concerned about the risks of allowing a company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don't share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks," he said.
