Phone book handouts no longer required in Juneau
The Regulatory Commission of Alaska on Friday agreed with recommendations to stop automatic distribution of white page directories.
Administrative law Judge John Wood in October ruled that information in phone books can be found on the Internet.
He said distribution of printed directories had become a source of customer frustration.
State regulations previously have required distribution of white page directories. Alaska Communications in 2011 asked the regulatory commission to change that rule.
Commissioners endorsed the change for deliveries on a three-year interim basis in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Juneau and the Kenai Peninsula.
