These responsibilities include monitoring competition in, and the performance and development of, telecommunications markets. The Commission may also conduct inquiries, reviews, and studies relating to the telecommunications industry or the long-term benefit of end-users of telecommunications services in New Zealand. The Commission has to make available reports or summaries of its monitoring activities.
Given its monitoring responsibilities, the Commission produces various monitoring reports on a regular basis. These include monitoring reports on Telecommunications markets generally and broadband performance specifically.
- Mobile Termination Access Service Standard Terms Determination (MTAS STD) monitoring reports.
- Industry monitoring prior to 2007 including Broadband Uptake Monitoring in 2005 and can be viewed in the archive.

The Commission produces an annual telecommunications monitoring report that looks at the state of telecommunications markets in New Zealand and developments that occurred during the year. It also looks at trends in telecommunications markets since the Commission was given responsibility for monitoring them in 2006. The report uses data from various sources but relies mainly on the results of the Commission's annual telecommunications industry questionnaire which collects data for the 30 June year.
As part of its monitoring of telecommunications markets in New Zealand, the Commission from time to time compares retail prices paid in New Zealand for baskets of telecommunications services with those paid in overseas countries. Other OECD countries are the usual comparator.
