The New Zealand Telecommunications Forum (TCF) plays a vital role in the New Zealand telecommunications industry through our work to efficiently resolve regulatory, technical
and policy issues for the benefit of the industry and its customers.

We enable the industry to work together more efficiently by providing an environment
where issues can be identified early, discussed collaboratively, and where possible
mutually acceptable solutions can be developed and implemented.
