Huawei GPON deal coming in Latvia?

My sources say that a local customer (not Lattelecom) is doing a deal with China's Huawei to build a GPON optical network. More on this Tuesday, June 2.
This is not surprising for two reasons 1) the big internet service providers in Latvia are all promising three-digit megabit speeds and you need optical for that 2) Huawei, having set up, literally, in Ericsson's back yard (the Kista district of Stockholm), is now making an effort to take regional market shares. So far, globally, the Chinese company is not doing badly, if news reports are accurate. More on this in a day or two.
