CDMA also uses it slots like cable internet, if the network is congested the highest quality of calls being placed on a tower is that of the worst signal. If you have the most expensive phone and i have the crapiest, and your at the prime reception point for that call and i'm two floors below the surface in a parkade just barly recieving a signal, your call is just as good as mine. Its called "Noise floor" on the same note GSM is using a dedicated slot. There may only be 8 time slots, but each one doesnt affect any other calls on that tower.
