Last week I wrote that the telecom downturn, or at least the loss of telecom jobs might be coming to an end. Now BellSouth in a surprising move says it will hire 1500 to handle its booming broadband business. The Wall Street Journal has the details, and points out that it is 7% increase in total broadband-related workforce, which is estimated to be around 20,000. The company has 63,000 total employees. The hiring binge is because the company is looking to rapidly increase its network and DSL penetration. It is also looking at boosting speeds on its DSL network to 6 megabits per second by end of 2005. The bulk of the new positions will be for technicians and engineers, writes the Journal.
