About Minitel services
The amount of information now available on the Internet from
french governmental and official sources may seem relatively low.
The reason is that Internet has been till now considered not totally secure.
French authorities have preferred to develop since early '80s their own
Minitel system, based on the V23 protocol.
There are now more than 6 000 000 minitels in the country, and a lot of PC's
can emulate the V23 protocol. A wide range of services was developped and made
widely accessible to the users. Even foreign countries may access that system
through telephone lines, and one may visit it around the world...
in the french embassies.
Software companies have developed very efficient algorithms to handle
large databases. Some of them are especially worth of use :
There are now a lot of
treasures lying in the Minitel system.
People are imagining ways for translating it to the Internet system.
The major problem could arise from the fact that service providers use
to charge for the access to their databases, and they don't know how to
deal with the Internet.
the 3611 (annuaire electronique) may provide in a second the dial
number and address of anyone in France (who accepted that his name appears).
