WICHITA, Kan. (AP) AT&T has announced plans to expand its mobile network in Kansas and to hire about 70 people in Wichita.
Steve Hahn, AT&T Kansas president, said at a news conference in Wichita on Tuesday that the need for additional jobs is driven by demand for mobile technology. The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/19fueoq) the new positions in Wichita will be for AT&T's customer care, U-verse and retail operations.
AT&T reportedly spent $110 million in capital investment in Kansas in the first half of 2013, and $725 million between 2009 and 2012. AT&T officials say they're wrapping up an expansion of the AT&T mobile Internet network that will cover 98 percent of the state.
