1. A method for notifying a repetition pattern of uplink data, performed by a user equipment, comprising:
selecting one of a plurality of repetition patterns as a repetition pattern of uplink data; and
implicitly or explicitly notifying a base station of the selected repetition pattern by the uplink data, so that the base station acquires the repetition pattern selected by the user equipment, the explicitly notifying the base station of the selected repetition pattern by the uplink data including:
explicitly notifying the base station of the selected repetition pattern by the uplink data, by multiplexing the uplink data with control information including information indicating the selected repetition pattern and transmitting the multiplexed data to the base station.
