THE DHI STORY
DHI Telecom Group was formed after witnessing countless startup ISPs make broken promises about reliable service to our men and women in uniform deployed in Iraq. It was felt we could do better based on the principle and realization of how important it is for our US servicemen to be able to talk to their loved ones back home. We understood they deserved an ISP who could guarantee broadband solutions to communicate when they wanted to with no excuses. We had the agility to bring information and people together and respond faster than anyone else. We knew we needed to out-innovate rivals. We started small and thought big.
This guiding philosophy and DHI Telecom Group’s customer-centric approach was received with enthusiasm and overwhelming positive response. This has been widely confirmed by Combatant Commanders, their soldiers, family members back home and civilians supporting them at every US/NATO base and US Dept. of State (DoS) Site DHI Telecom Group serves. It wasn't long when decision makers from various defense contractors began soliciting our services for their business needs. Government agencies also quickly followed suit for DHI Telecom Group to compete for government circuits.
After other ISPs failed to adequately serve men and women in uniform in Afghanistan, Headquarters, Army & Air Force Exchange Service (The Exchange) decided to take action and issued a solicitation to provide turnkey ISP concession operations at every US/NATO military installation in Afghanistan. DHI Telecom Group competed against hundreds of companies and on October 26, 2010 was awarded a longterm Department of Defense (DoD) contract under The Exchange.
Over three million have connected with loved ones back home, making DHI Telecom Group the largest internet provider in an active war zone. DHI Telecom Group team members have built and operated networks from the ground-up and have provided system administration of networks that have supported over five million users with 1,500 servers, 2.5 petabytes of SAN storage, high availability clusters and VMWare virtualization among others.
DHI Telecom Group is an approved US Government contractor and is registered with FBO, JCCS, System for Awards Management (SAM) and Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF). It maintains a current profile with ORCA/BPN. In addition to DoD contracts with The Exchange, DHI Telecom Group companies are servicing and supporting several active US Government telecommunications contracts.
