AT&T can stop delivering directories if requested

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Public Service Commission is waiving a rule that requires Alabama's largest telephone company, AT&T, to deliver telephone directories to each of its customers.

The PSC voted unanimously Tuesday to let AT&T stop delivering directories to those customers who say they no longer want one.

All other customers will continue to get new directories each year.

The head of the PSC's Telecommunications Division, Darrell Baker, says some customers don't want printed directories because numbers are readily available electronically.

Baker said the change will also save paper costs.
