1. A communication apparatus comprising:circuitry, which, in operation, determines a symbol occupancy of two consecutive subframes used to transmit downlink data,
a transmitter, which, in operation, transmits downlink scheduling information that includes up to four bits indicating the symbol occupancy of the two consecutive subframes and, in operation, transmits the downlink data that is mapped to occupied Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) symbols in the two consecutive subframes indicated by the downlink scheduling information,
wherein an ending position of the occupied OFDM symbols is located at a variable position within the two consecutive subframes.
