NPTN has filed for bankruptcy and is in the process of winding down its operations. At sometime in the near future this server will be shutting down. While we are saddened by this event the future of community networks is bright and new systems are coming on line frequently.
A Current listing of Free-Nets and Community Networks along with other information concerning Free-Nets and Community Network Systems can be found at the Organization For Community Network's server OFCN.ORG
In addition some similar type projects for the Community Users can also be found at the Organization For Community Networks site at OFCN.ORG
Please note, that OFCN has no legal relationship with NPTN. It's a completely new organization intended to provide some, but not all, of the services associated with NPTN.
The National Public Telecomputing Network (NPTN) was a nonprofit corporation located in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A., and served as the parent organization for "Free-Net" community computer network systems world wide.
