Intercell interference is a major factor that limits the capacity of cellular wireless communication systems. This paper proposes an accurate statistical model that caters to interference and noise to determine the ergodic capacity. A new expression for ergodic capacity is derived that enables us to calculate area spectral efficiency (ASE) and energy efficiency (EE). This expression has been used to calculate and compare ASE and EE for low and high traffic scenarios with various signal-to-noise ratios and intercell distances.
