Need for speed

The Postal Service is upgrading the organization’s internet bandwidth to boost network speeds and efficiencies.

The multiphase Telecom Integrated Postal Network Enhanced (TIPN-E) project is spearheaded by the Chief Information Office’s Network and Compute Technology teams.

The project will modernize existing network circuit technology to increase internet speeds for all retail and delivery sites and extend access to more Post Offices in rural areas.

The TIPN-E project’s upgrade schedule runs through fiscal year 2024.

In the meantime, the TIPN-E project Blue page has tips to help postal facilities currently experiencing sluggish internet performance.

The TIPN-E project is part of the Postal Service’s Delivering for America 10-year plan to improve the organization’s network.
