This paper describes downlink throughput performances measured in a mobile broadband wireless access (MBWA) system field trial with Fast Low-latency Access with Seamless Handoff Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (FLASH-OFDM). The field trial results show that the downlink cell sizes are 0.4 km2, 0.6 km2, and 1.7 km2 when the sector antenna heights are 19 m, 58 m, and 84 m, respectively, assuming the following items. (1) The cell shape is circular. (2) The cell edge is defined as the location where the average downlink throughput is 1.5 Mbit/s.
