ACS drops long-distance plan

Posted: Monday, April 02, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska Communications Systems is scrapping its ''Infinite Minutes'' in-state long-distance calling plan because of ''misuse'' and ''burdensome regulatory conditions'' that made it less profitable, the company said.

The Anchorage-based telecom company will now charge residential customers 14-cents a minute for in-state long distance, instead of a $20 monthly flat rate for unlimited calls.

ACS said it is revising its residential ''Infinite Minutes'' interstate long-distance plan, which also costs $20 a month for unlimited calls. It will be replaced gradually with a tiered program, the company said Friday.
