Publications

The TIO's publications include important information for our key stakeholders who include staff, members, consumers, regulators, journalists and government.

We have a range of brochures, including one in 31 languages, which are available for distribution to consumers and member organisations.

Our fact sheets, which can be printed in PDF format, include more comprehensive information about topics of interest for consumers and small businesses.

Our annual report contains a review of our key statistics, staff and consumer profiles, analysis of the key issues that we have dealt with during the year, and an analysis of telecommunications industry consumer codes.  

The TIO has the power to make legally binding decisions, or determinations, on service providers. All determinations, with the names of service providers and consumers removed, are published on our website. 

TIO Talks is published four times a year and provides consumers with regular updates on our key statistics, case studies, and consumer tips. This publication is available in hard copy and online.

We issue regular media releases, which provide comment on topics of interest including the contents of TIO Talks and our annual report.
