This paper investigates the concept of Mobile Femtocell which is the extension of implementing Mobile Relays and Fixed Femtocells. 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. This study intends to help cell-edge users to have better signal strength. 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. This paper is considering several scenarios namely; Fixed Femtocells with Fixed users, Mobile Femtocells with fixed users, Fixed Femtocells with mobile users and Finally Mobile Femtocells with mobile users. 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.
