BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — AT&T plans to fill more than 500 job openings in Louisiana, including more than 450 new jobs.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/15a4tRn ) many of the new positions are the result of AT&T's recently announced Project Velocity IP, a three-year, multibillion-dollar investment plan to expand and enhance its national wireless and wired IP broadband networks nationwide.

As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to increase the density of its wireless network by deploying more than 10,000 macro sites, more than 1,000 distributed antenna systems and more than 40,000 small cells.
