This paper discusses the feasibility of offering multiple service classes, e.g., premium and basic, in the 3G EGPRS (Enhanced General Packet Radio Services) system using different scheduling mechanisms. We investigate weighted round-robin type scheduling for differentiating the service classes together with two types of packet schedulers: radio-aware packet schedulers at the radio access network, and conventional packet schedulers at the edge of the core network. The results show that for the EGPRS-like system simulated: (i) incorporating radio link conditions and radio resource management into the scheduling can improve the overall delay performance by more than 20%; (ii) a weighted round-robin scheduling to differentiate service classes may not be suitable for an interference limited environment. Our ongoing work will consider using multiple time-slot assignments for providing differentiated services
