In this letter we propose a novel resource allocation and admission control strategy for OFDMA-based emerging LTE systems. Considering users' reneging and migration between service providers, we first prove that the optimal resource allocation problem, which maximizes the service provider's gross income is, NP-complete. Subsequently, we propose two different heuristics based on dynamic programming and greedy algorithms to get a near-optimal resource allocation and admission control strategy in computationally feasible time. Simulation results point out that the solutions offer increased gross income of the service provider, while offering low latency, adequate throughput and session acceptance.
