ATLANTA, Nov. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today announced that the company will hire workers for more than 145 jobs across Georgia, including 43 new jobs. The positions include retail, corporate support, and technicians, and are a result of AT&T's continued investment in Georgia.

"AT&T continues to expand its customer base in Georgia and invest in our network to ensure we are providing the high level of service customers have come to expect," said AT&T Georgia President Sylvia Russell. "As part our commitment to this level of customer service and to support our growth in Georgia, we are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome more than 145 Georgia residents to the AT&T family."
In the first half of 2013, AT&T invested more than $675 million in its wireless and wired networks in Georgia. The investments included deployment of new macro cell sites, small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems across the state as a part of AT&T'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.
Project Velocity IP is also spurring the deployment of advanced fiber-optic connections to thousands of Georgia businesses. In just the first six months of 2013, nearly 11,650 additional business customer locations in Georgia – located in more than 400 multi-tenant office buildings across the state – now have access to blazing-fast, reliable connections to Internet and cloud-based resources, which ride on the fiber network.
As part of Project VIP, AT&T also deployed advanced wired IP broadband connections for consumers, including AT&T U-verse® services for more than 12,400 customer locations in Georgia, in just the first six months of 2013. AT&T U-verse is an integrated bundle of services delivered over AT&T's advanced IP network that include AT&T U-verse High Speed Internet, AT&T U-verse TV and AT&T U-verse Voice. AT&T offers customers the freedom to watch hit TV shows virtually anywhere, extensive HD channels, competitive Internet speeds, flexible bundles and continued service innovation. AT&T was recently named Frost & Sullivan Video Company of the Year.
AT&T jobs are among the best in the world and full- and part-time positions include competitive wages and benefits. AT&T currently employs more than 21,000 employees throughout Georgia and consistently hires new talent. AT&T is regularly recognized for training and development programs that are among the best in the country, and invested about $280 million training employees and about $26.6 million in tuition aid during 2012.
