ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Folks in Albany may soon notice a change when it comes to their phone books.

AT&T will now only deliver white pages to your house if you request them.

The Public Service Commission voted to exempt telephone companies from a requirement they distribute white pages in areas with more that 50,000 residents.

Albany falls into that category.

While AT&T will continue to deliver yellow pages on door steps, white pages will be available online and by request.

"It's about giving consumers a choice whether they want to receive that information electronically or if they want to continue to receive the paper telephone directory, which upon request we are going to continue to provide free of charge," said Courtney Brinson, AT&T Regional Director of External Affairs.

If this initiative does go into affect, customers will be given notice before discontinued delivery.
