1. A method for modifying the encoding scheme for at least one connection in a GSM communication system having at least one control channel and at least one traffic channel, wherein the traffic channel and the control channel are separate channels, said method comprising the steps of:

  • monitoring the signal quality of said at least one control channel;

    assigning a comparable signal quality to said at least one traffic channel; and

    selecting an encoding scheme to apply to said traffic channel based upon the comparable signal quality, wherein the selected encoding scheme increases an error correction capability when the comparable signal quality is below a predetermined parameter, and wherein the selected encoding scheme decreases the error correction capability when the comparable signal quality is above the predetermined parameter.
