Until today, the shutdown was just a rumor. It is now official. In a press release issued on January 29, 2010, Orange Business Services announced that it will shut down its X25 services in September 2011.

X25 services, marketed since 1979 under the name Transpac, supported data exchanges between companies, EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) flows, and treasury and electronic money flows.
