Data transmission within a broad-band communication system occurs as follows: During time periods where a remote unit (113) is not actively communicating to a base station (100) utilizing either a fundamental or a supplemental channel, the remote unit (113) is actively or periodically monitoring a forward control channel (IS-95A paging channel) for notification of any pending transmission by the base station (100). The base station (100) determines that a high data rate transmission to the remote unit (113) needs to take place and determines if supplemental channel circuitry (105) is available for utilization. Shortly prior to supplemental channel availability, the base station (100) notifies the remote unit (113) of a pending data transmission and assigns the remote unit (113) a fundamental channel to establish an appropriate transmit power level. Finally, data transmission to the remote unit (113) takes place utilizing the supplemental channel.
