AT&T expands in Slovakia

ONE of the biggest telecom companies in the world, AT&T, will open a new branch office in Bratislava within one week.

The amount of the investment remains undisclosed, the Hospodárske Noviny economic daily wrote.

The new service centre will create more than 300 jobs. The company has already been running a similar centre in Bratislava since 2002. About 650 Slovaks are currently employed there.

The expansion of AT&T in Bratislava arrives at a time when its rival T-Systems from Germany is promising an expansion in Košice. It wants to boost its current labour force of about 500 in Košice by 100 people by the end of 2008.
