COMPLEMENTARY (TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES)

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Two or more services are complementary when both or all are required to obtain the final combined or bundled service that the end-user wants. For example, car bodies, car engines and car tires are complementary - all must be combined to obtain the final service that consumers want (in this case car transportation services).
