In this paper we provide a geometric and mathematical model that can be used to evaluate the user rate distribution for a cellular system under the notion of a hyper receiver incorporating realistic system parameters. Variable cell sizes and different location-based decoding orders are analysed and the uplink user rate distribution of a cellular system in which each transmitted signal experiences a distance dependent path loss, fast fading and slow fading, is derived. Interestingly enough, among the three different decoding orders examined, the forward one provides the best results both in terms of fairness (larger percentage of users get satisfactory rates) and minimum rate. The difference among the decoding orders becomes even more notable as the cell sizes increase. There has also to be noted that none of these decoding orders affect the sum-rate.
