TDS Telecom, To Their Credit(?), Still Prints Local Telephone Directories — Albeit Ultra Skinny Ones.

It came in the mail Saturday. Thought it was a magazine. No. The 2019 Directory for this area. Cute. Yes, they have been doing printed directories every year or most years. But, they used to be more substantial. Yes, they have gone to a larger format. Previous ones were narrower and shorter.
I checked a few names I knew. They were all there.
They have done their best to pad it. Even includes a page on ‘TDS TV‘ channel listings.
Maybe they are legally or contractually obligated, and YES I appreciate that WE, as paying customers, eventually end up paying for the costs of printing these. But, this is a waste and an anachronism. Sure, there will be a few that still appreciate a printed phone directory BUT you are not going to find the phone numbers you want in it. That is the problem.
