AT&T will add approximately 475 new jobs to its current AT&T
Indiana work force, according to a company announcement. Many of these
new positions will be centered around the company's Internet Protocol
(IP)-based television service that is available in several Indiana
cities. According to company officials, the new jobs are the continuing
result of AT&T's High Speed to the Heartland initiative, which has
brought broadband service to 33 communities throughout the state, many
of them rural areas without prior broadband availability. The expansion
began in 2006 after the Indiana legislature passed HB 1279, a bill that
loosened regulations on telecommunications companies doing business in
the state. AT&T has added more than 1,500 new jobs in Indiana since
that bill was passed.
