AT&T to increase Connecticut U-verse workforce

As AT&T's (NYSE: T) U-verse continues to grow, the ILEC is ramping up its workforce to keep up with service demand in Connecticut.

Positions up for grabs during a two-day job fair in New Haven and Rocky Hill, Conn. include U-verse technicians, door-to-door and retail sales and sales management.

Between 2007 and 2009, AT&T invested about $825 million in its Connecticut wireless and wireline networks, a market it entered through its purchase of the former Southern New England Telephone (SNET), including Fiber to the Node (FTTN) and IPTV network infrastructure.

AT&T's call for U-verse workers makes sense. The service provider just had one its most successful quarters to date with U-verse, adding 209,000 new subscribers in the second quarter--and recording $1 billion in revenue for the first time ever.
