Softbank, Sprint Pledge Not to Use Huawei, Lawmaker Says

Softbank Corp. and Sprint Nextel Corp. told a U.S. lawmaker they won’t integrate equipment from Chinese gear maker Huawei Technologies Co. into Sprint’s network after they merge, the legislator said.

“I expect them to make the same assurances before any approval of the deal” by U.S. agencies reviewing the proposed $20 billion merger for national security implications, Representative Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican who leads the House Intelligence Committee, said in an e-mailed statement.
