AT&T is looking to gain momentum for its proposed purchase of T-Mobile USA by promising to add 5,000 call-center jobs domestically if the deal goes through. The company also has committed to maintaining the 25,000 existing call-center positions held by the combined operations of AT&T and T-Mobile. "Does this shore up an issue that people have? Sure, I hope it does," CEO Randall Stephenson said Tuesday. Also Tuesday, AT&T asked regulators to consider a small spectrum purchase separately from the T-Mobile deal.
