French president flags up new media taxes to fund an invigorated public TV service free of ads

The French could face taxes on internet and mobile phone use, according to
plans by president Sarkozy.

He intends to introduce the taxes so that the two French public television

He has called for a ‘cultural revolution’ in public service television, while
reassuring internet and mobile phone users that the new taxes would be
‘infinitesimal’, reported the
BBC.
