AT&T on Friday said it will create about 200 new retail and technician jobs in Illinois.

“In today’s economy, there’s no doubt that broadband creates jobs,” AT&T Illinois President Paul La Schiazza said at a news conference at the company’s Michigan Avenue flagship store. Gov. Pat Quinn was also in attendance.

The governor thanked AT&T for contributing to a “broadband employment future.”

“This investment of AT&T … to create more jobs in Illinois — that’s what we have to do over and over again,” Quinn said.

The new jobs will be located in Chicago, Aurora, Elgin, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Libertyville, Champaign and Springfield, the company said.

AT&T employs more than 14,000 workers in Illinois.
