A wireless communication device (22) and method provides for the transmission of multiple data streams in a bandwidth-limited environment such that each of the data streams is afforded access to the transmission function in accordance with a priority. The priority may be determined on the basis of the application type, the TCP/IP four-tuple or other means. A data queue may be established during the active duration of each application and may be eliminated when the application has terminated or when the data queue is empty.
