Bresnan Communications plans to build a regional operations center in Billings, Mont., AP reported.

The MSO said more than 100 new jobs would come to Billings within the next year, with more possibly to follow.

Spokeswoman Maureen Huff told AP construction of the 44,000-square-foot facility should begin in the next few months, with plans to move in by year-end.

The Big Sky Economic Development Authority offered several monetary incentives to lure the center to Billings, and Bresnan received a $500,000 federal appropriation toward construction costs, Big Sky EDA director Joe McClure told AP.

Bresnan purchased cable systems in Montana and the Rocky Mountain West region early last year.
