Soprani.ca is a vision of freedom-respecting and interoperable communication using open standards, including projects that generalize phone numbers so they're easier to use from computers, tablets, and any other device.


Here are 3 Soprani.ca projects. The 1st one is the most relevant to the Réseau Libre community, and I am certain the two others will interest most of you.

1- WOM is a community-run radio network that will allow people to chat over long distances with their peers.



2- JMP gives you a Canadian or US phone number that is yours to keep. JMP allows you to send and receive text and picture messages using any Jabber client. You can also make and receive phone calls, including receiving voicemails delivered to you as audio recordings and text transcriptions.



JMP is preparing to launch a data-only mobile plan, starting with an eSIM with other options possibly to follow. We plan to have an option that roams over all of the USA and Canada (on all major carriers), with an option for Europe or other locations possible with enough interest.


3- Cheogram is a set of services that connect all open communication networks together, allowing you to reach all your contacts from a single app.
