As the number of users in a cellular system increases, the traffic per unit time also increases. The allocated spectrum becomes gradually congested and eventually becomes used up. Congestion of the spectrum means that the call blocking probability has increased and this is not desired in the system. This paper presents cell splitting as a technique of improving channel capacity in cellular communication system. It also went further to show that increase in channel capacity directly reduces call blocking probability and call delay probability. The results are simulated and shown using Matlab
