    At first glance, I thought it was a Coyote Terminal, But looking closer and because of the French, it looks like it’s a Minitel

    That’s a Minitel. Short for Médium interactif par numérisation d’information téléphonique.

    It was also the first “online service” (its backbone used X.25, it wasn’t TCP/IP so I have a hard time calling it “internet”) to have adult content.
