What exactly is NPSTN?
NPSTN is short for "Novelty Public Switched Telephone Network", "Novelty PSTN", and "Northern Pacific Switched Telecommunications Network".
NPSTN is a free online community that is dedicated to connecting telephone collectors and enthusiasts together.
NPSTN works a lot like C*NET, but we use different network protocols. For example, C*NET uses eNum while we use HTTPS with our own PHP API. In addition, there is a greater emphasis on network services, protocols, standards, and coherency. There are a lot of services, like operator services, tandems, and routings, behind the scenes, and the network as a whole is more phreak-friendly.
