1. A method in a user equipment for estimating an available throughput for uplink data to be sent from the user equipment to a base station over a radio link in a wireless communications network, wherein the available throughput is provided by the wireless communications network to the user equipment, the method comprising:
obtaining information about a past scheduling of the user equipment;
obtaining a radio quality measure related to the radio link; and
estimating the available throughput based on:
a relationship between the information about a past scheduling of the user equipment and one or more previously obtained pieces of information about the past scheduling of the user equipment;
a relationship between the radio quality measure and one or more previously obtained radio quality measures; and
a previously obtained throughput of uplink data sent from the user equipment to the base station, wherein the previously obtained throughput is associated with the one or more previously obtained pieces of information about the past scheduling and the one or more previously obtained radio quality measures; and
optimizing a quality of service based on one or more of the estimated available throughput and estimated current and future cell loads.
