This paper proposes a novel packet scheduling algorithm to overcome detrimental effects of channel impairments on the quality of service of delay-sensitive Guaranteed Bit Rate (GBR) services. The proposed algorithm prioritises the packets that require retransmission of Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) users compared to the packets of new users. The packets of new users are scheduled according to the Channel Quality Information (CQI), average throughput and packet delay information. Computer simulations have demonstrated that the proposed algorithm has 22.7% system capacity improvement over a well-known algorithm. It also tolerates for up to 200% delay of CQI and reduces the uplink signalling overhead by 150% compared to the well-known algorithm without compromising the quality of service requirements of the GBR services.
