A cellular communication system is divided into two main parts, core network, and radio access network. This research is concerned with the radio access network part which consists of multiple-cells, each served by a central located base station. Furthermore, the users in each cell are considered to be uniformly distributed inside the cell. In the downlink context, the users’ packets usually arrive at the base station via fiber optic and then are relayed to the users via radio waves of certain frequency/ies. The speeds of delivering users’ packets vary, depending on the users’ location. In this paper, the actual distribution of the service time over different users whose locations are uniformly distributed in a cell served by one base station is analytically found. Simulation results are presented to validate the derived model.
