Dear list members,

I have read some messages about the french Minutel.

The real name of this France Telecom product is : Minitel :)

It was an interesting marketing tool a few years ago.

1 : Minitel machine is free

2 : But conections are not, based on a minute fee : from 1,23 FF to 10 FF
and more !

3 : And the funny thing :
Each content provider receives half of the money resulting from their
connections. Yes that s true, everytime somebody is connecting to your
server, you are earning money.

4 : This is the reason why France is so slow to jump into the Internet. But
it is changing faster and faster. French users are more than a million now.
The biggest companies run their own WWW site.

Greetings from France
