Huawei, Optus and Maybe Telstra

The National Broadband Network tenders are all in. And Telstra is out. But someone has told that Huawei is linked to the Chinese Military. Strange Story. The opposition is really pushing the issue. But I am just wondering why. And where the story came from.

I am just guessing here, but could it be Telstra? The Huawei equipment is used by Telstra for their Next-G for some customers wanting broadband. But who would win if Optus drops out of the NBN? Would that be Telstra?
