AT&T hiring 101 technicians in Wisconsin U-verse expansion

AT&T (NYSE:T) is hiring--again. The company said it has begun hiring 101 technicians across Wisconsin to support its growing IPTV and Internet business.

The company, which has seen little on its wireline business grow other than its U-verse segment, made the announcement at AT&T's Wisconsin corporate offices in Milwaukee that saw even Wisconsin's Gov. Scott Walker show up.

AT&T U-verse services, which include U-verse TV, high-speed Internet and VoIP, are now available to more than 800,000 living units in more than 140 communities in Wisconsin. AT&T says it has invested nearly $800 million in its Wisconsin wireless and wireline networks from 2008 through 2010.

"We are expanding the availability of our award-recognized AT&T U-verse services and signing up new customers every day, and we need more U-verse technicians to keep up with the growing demand," said Scott VanderSanden, AT&T Wisconsin president.

The company recently hired additional technicians for U-verse rollouts in Atlanta, San Francisco and Connecticut.
