[France] Orange switched off speaking clock [telecom]

The French telephone network operator and ISP Orange switched off the speaking clock service at 1st July 2022.

France was the first country that operated an automatic system for the speaking clock.

I don't see a real reason for that, such a service could be provided easily and very cheap via a computer and VoIP.

Many countries still provide this service, but with costs.

A German telecom museum operates an old speaking clock from 1958 with tapes - everybody can use it via a public telephone number.

Here you can see that device in action:
