The End of an Era: The Official End of the Minitel

The Minitel, a place where you could look up phone numbers, find a cinema, check the weather and more, and a forerunner to the Internet has it's end near. The Télétel service will end on June 30, 2012, rendering inoperable numerous Minitel's still actually in service. In an e-mail sent to its clients, the telecommunications company Orange reminded its clients of this due date marked by a significant step: starting Wednesday March 7th Minitel renters will not be charged. All good things have their day.
