AT&T plans regional operation in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - AT&T Inc. plans a regional headquarters operation in Birmingham for one division and will hire 300 workers for a call center at the same site.

AT&T says the Gulf States headquarters will handle its consumer and mobility division. The unit is responsible for wireless operations, retail stores and offerings such as the new the U-verse television service.

Company officials say the Birmingham operation will oversee those activities in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and northwest Florida.

AT&T is staffing the unit with personnel from Birmingham and transfers from Mobile, Louisiana and elsewhere.
