We study the performance of a UNITS downlink, as achieved by a single-user (RAKE) and a multiuser (linear MMSE) receiver with adaptive modulation and multicode in the presence of multipath fading. We advocate an adaptive transmission scheme that varies the number of virtual users and the modulation spectral efficiency in order to optimize the system throughput. Two multipath channel models are considered, exhibiting 3 and 9 paths, respectively. Over the more favorable multipath channel, the multiuser MMSE receiver yields a significant performance enhancement with respect to the RAKE receiver
