Summary: 
In LTE, AC barring check is performed before RRC connection. In some cells with a low access probability, the UEs keep retrying access which results in higher connection failure and longer access delay. We therefore propose balancing the UEs by adjusting the cell reselection criteria based on the access probability, so that the UEs shall be more encouraged to reselect a cell with a higher access probability.
