This paper examines the concept of Mobile Femtocells to be the revolution of the next generation cellular networks. Mobile Femtocells can be deployed in public transportation vehicles such as trains, buses or private cars that form its own cell inside vehicles to serve vehicular and mobile User Equipments. The purpose of this study is to help cell-edge users to have better signal strength. Therefore, an investigation into Long Term Evolution cell-edge users' performance is being conducted by investigating the deployment of Mobile Femtocells in LTE system. The throughput for cell edge users can be improved by deploying Fixed/Mobile Femtocells. In this paper, two scenarios have been considered in the case of Fixed/Mobile Femtocells. The handover of Mobile Femtocell has been expressed in three more scenarios. The achieved results via Matlab simulation showed that Mobile Femtocells' users have enjoyed better Quality of Services than Fixed Femtocells' users. The improved performance has been noticed through the improvement of the Mobile Femtocells UEs' spectral efficiency, throughput and SINR over the Fixed Femtocells' users. The system behavior has been investigated under low, medium and high load traffic before and after adding the Mobile Femtocells. The results showed that adding the Mobile Femtocells in the high loaded traffic areas has the biggest affect on improving the UE's throughput.
