Minitel is dead

· Minitel

Today is a very sad day, as Minitel service is permanently shut down in France. For a lot of people though, it was already impossible to connect to the service as Minitel and VoIP phone lines do not mix well together.

The event has already been covered by a large number of sites and therefore, I will just publish some pictures I took especially for this day during my last trip to France.

R.I.P. Minitel…
