AT&T touts benefits of merger to Linn

AT&T says its proposed deal to acquire T-Mobile would benefit Linn County as well as the rest of the country.

If the merger goes through, Portland-based AT&T executive Adam Grzybicki says, his company would expand its network to the point where all of Linn County’s population of about 120,000, not just 80,000 as now, would have access to the most advanced kind of wireless broadband services.

Linn County and other partly rural parts of Oregon would have the same communications infrastructure as Manhattan or San Francisco, a big plus for attracting business and industry, according to Grzybicki.

He is AT&T’s external affairs president for Oregon, Idaho and Montana, and he talked about the proposed merger in an interview Monday.
