FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Comcast hopes the large student population in Fort Collins will help it fill 600 new jobs it’s creating at a planned call center in the city.

The call center, announced Thursday, is expected to open early next year on the Hewlett-Packard campus.

The Coloradoan (https://noconow.co/22i9dm0) reports that the cable and internet service provider chose the home of Colorado State University for its diverse and highly educated workforce.

Comcast would be able to get $8.1 million in tax breaks from the state if it maintains 635 full-time jobs for one year that pay at least $44,421, the average wage in Larimer County. If it creates 600 jobs rather than 635, the incentive will be pro-rated.

With the new positions, the company will have more than 8,000 employees in Colorado.
