What is Commercial Cellular Services?
Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) - Commercial Mobile Radio Service is a regulatory classification for cellular phone services in the United States that was created by the Federal Communications Commissions in 1993. It regulates cellular, SMR / ESMR and PCS communication under a single legal roof. According to the law, mobile services are regulated as joint operators if they want to provide services for the general public.
The classification of commercial cellular services was created by the US Federal Communications Commission under the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993. It initially comprised paging, land mobile services, specialized cellular services, coastal public radio stations and other wireless communication methods, services for the general public for a fee. It essentially brought all mobile services under a regulatory umbrella while cellphone technology was just beginning to take hold among consumers. The regulation distinguishes between for-profit services and private services.
