Lycos unveiled a search engine called Lycos France in collaboration with European telecom provider Global One, a joint venture among France Telecom, Deutsche Telekom and Sprint. In addition to Global One, Lycos France is working with several ad agencies and French content providers to customize Lycos for the French market. The site
--though now in beta--plans to launch a catalog of French-only sites on March 1. The site will also be advertising-supported.
