AT&T ramps up North Carolina wireline, wireless workforce

AT&T (NYSE: T) is looking to add 250 more new members to its workforce in North Carolina who will serve about 30 sites to fulfill growing demand for wireline and wireless services.

The service provider said on Monday that it is expanding wireline-based services such as U-verse and LTE wireless services across the state.

Among the open positions are wireline installation technicians, network testers and managers.

This latest hiring drive is part of a broader effort to augment its wireless network with small cells and expand its fiber footprint to serve both residential and business users.

AT&T's expansion in North Carolina ties in well with the growth it continues to see in wireline business and consumer products such as U-verse TV and broadband, both of which were the stars of its wireline results in Q1 2013.

Despite facing a challenging economic environment, strategic business services, which represent a $7.9 billion annualized revenue stream, grew 10.8 percent over Q1 2012. Likewise, U-verse revenues rose 31.5 percent year-over-year and 5 percent sequentially.
