Last month we reported that Creative Technology and QMax, Creative subsidiary firm, sued Huawei for $9.3 million over failed WiMax network in Singapore. Taking a twist in the story, today Huwaei countersued over the now said to be “closed service”, reports Straits Times. Creative launched the WiMAX network, under the QMax banner, in 2008 but the QMax service was shuttered in December last year.
A Creative subsidiary, QMax Communications, agreed on a deal with Huawei to set up a WiMAX network in itss Singapore center back in 2010, but now the company reportedly asking the ICT provider to return back the money after the problem spread across the network was shut down in December 2011. The Chinese firm is claiming that is owed $8.23 million in unpaid goods and services, that’s in addition to compensation for the ‘wrongful’ termination of its contract, a figure that is yet to be finalized.
