France Telecom extended its new found enthusiasm for the Internet today, slashing around 20 per cent off the cost of leased lines.
Price cuts will be introduced across France Telecom's Internet Advantage range of leased line services for businesses. Internet Advantage has nearly 220,000 customers.
Much lambasted for its reluctance to migrate from its proprietary Minitel information system to the Internet, France Telecom is now making a concerted effort to promote Internet usage in France.
France Telecom said in a statement that the rate cuts reflect its, "ongoing efforts to make it easier for businesses to take advantage of the growing variety of Internet Protocol services."
A 64kbps leased line will cost FFr3,900 per month excluding VAT, while a 512kbps service starts at FFr13,500 per month excluding VAT.
