Full Paper

 

Overview:

The first in a series of papers on wireless services and technologies, PCS Primer, provides an accessible, basic reference manual for personal communications services.  This paper answers the questions most frequently asked of the FCC's Wireless Bureau.  Answers include the origin of PCS services, their location on the radio spectrum, standards, cell site location the auctions for PCS licenses and other license issues.  These answers lay the groundwork for policy decisions and provide a guide for the general public.  For an update, see the PCS Supplement.
