I've owned a cellphone for ages, and have largely remained ignorant of the business workings. Is there a crash course on cellular markets?

I'm curious how cellular companies work behind the scenes. Do they really build multiple competing "networks", or do they mostly build peering agreements? The latter seems technically possible, given "roaming" implies off network usage. Also of interest to me is whether there's a distinction made for data and voice outside of billing the customer.
