About DTS-PO

The Diplomatic Telecommunications Service Program Office (DTS-PO) supports all United States Government departments and agencies operating from Diplomatic and Consular facilities outside of the United States by providing secure, reliable, and robust communications capabilities.

We offer connections to all U.S. Embassy and Consulate facilities around the world. We offer terrestrial, satellite and internet services, international direct-dialing and Voice over IP (VoIP).

Congress created DTS-PO in 1992 to provide a way for Government agencies to meet increasing demand for network services given a tight fiscal environment. By taking advantage of economies of scale, and by working with commercial partners on a global scale, we offer rates and network benefits that any one agency could not obtain on its own.

We provide extraordinary reliability all over the world through network redundancy. DTS-PO provides 24/7 network support and training to our U.S. Government customers.
