What is a custom radio?

hey guys i found references to custom radios around saying that the radio in a device is what connects to the tower. i knew that but what exactly does a custom radio do? better service? better data? whats up with them like i have a galaxy nexus and i see fd02 and fd12 radios but i have no idea what each radio will do to my phone by installing it?
