A method and system for transmitting packet data over a cellular telecommunications network is presented. A novel medium access control (MAC) logical layer is implemented between a service option layer and multiplex sublayer. The MAC layer handles the multiple accesses of packet users over selected dedicated traffic channels. The MAC layer provides a multiple access control function for packet data users only. Users requiring only circuit switched services (voice calls) are not serviced through the MAC layer multiple access control function. If a user has simultaneous circuit switched and packet data services operating, the MAC layer multiple access control function handles the packet data services, while the circuit switched services are handled simultaneously by bypassing the MAC layer multiple access control function.
