We’re building an amateur phone collective in Philadelphia! Are you a hacker, artist, or engineer? We need your help!

Philtel is looking to install new (to us) payphones within the city of Philadelphia. Any payphone installed will be completely free-to-use, allowing the user to place calls within North America. Additionally, we would like to provide various experiences and services through the phones; these could be as simple as voicemail, fun as a phone number that randomly calls other payphones, or as complex as an integration with phone collectors’ networks to allow phone-phreaking and exploration!

Want to know how we are building the network? Check out the about page!

Philtel was founded in June 2022 and was inspired by Futel.

We hope to have our first payphone installed in the coming months!
