There is some confusion here. There has been discussion about there
being "three levels" of PCs Heroic, Epic and Paragon ... or something
similar. Now the question is whether that is just 4e information in
general about the new game system of is about the levels in LFR or
both. I have not seen anything definitive yet. Someone else may have
more 'official' information.

categories of PC levels that they are using. 1-10 is heroic, 11-20
is paragon, 21-30 is epic. Different options will be available
depending on the category and they suggest that they also be used to
help define what type of adventure is appropriate for the PCs. For
example, heroic level PCs deal with more local issues, paragon PCs
are getting into affairs at the national level, epic levels are
traveling the planes.
FWIW, it was also stated that LFR will support all levels of
characters. We'll see how that pans out.
- According to the 4E information I've seen, pcs will be able to play up
to 30th level using the core PHB. Each 10 levels will have a distinct
label to them that is mostly (although not completely) transparent.
Levels 1 through 10 are heroic, 11 through 20 are paragon, and 21
through 30 are epic.
The first published modules for 4E will be labeled H1, H2, and H3.
The H is for heroic. Also, I read on the WotC site about 4E magic
items that rings won't work for a character unless he's 11th level and
at 21st level he can benefit from wearing 2 rings. Supposedly rings
are meant to be really powerful in 4E.
Chris Tulach has stated somewhere (can't find it now) that LFR will be
as close to core rules as possible. This means pcs will be able to go
up to 30th level. These statements are all subject to change. I've
mostly been getting this stuff from ENWorld so it's as accurate as any
non-WotC employee can be (which is to say please take this with a
grain of salt).
