LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 14, 2014) – AT&T has announced plans to hire workers for 116 jobs in Kentucky, including 34 new positions to add to its existing Kentucky staff of 3,000-plus.
The positions being filled are technicians, retail support and call center representatives and are a result of AT&T’s continuing investment across the commonwealth.
AT&T invested nearly $110 in its Kentucky wireless and wireline networks in the first half of 2013. Projects included the deployment of new macro cell sites, small cells and distributed antenna systems across the state as part of the company’s Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. The company also expanded and enhanced its 4G LTE network, which provides ultra-fast mobile Internet speeds, and deployed new wi-fi hot spots.
AT&T officials said hiring veterans remains a priority for company, as it finds veterans’ skills to be a good fit for the company’s needs. More than 3,600 veterans started new careers at AT&T in 2013 and the company has doubled its hiring goal for veterans and their family members to 10,000 over the next five years.
