In this letter, we focus on the performance of a worst-case mobile user (MU) in the downlink cellular network. We derive the coverage probability and the spectral efficiency of the worst-case MU using stochastic geometry. Through analytical and numerical results, we draw out interesting insights that the coverage probability and the spectral efficiency of the worst-case MU decrease down to 23% and 19% of those of a typical MU, respectively. By applying a coordinated scheduling (CS) scheme, we also investigate how much the performance of the worst-case MU is improved.
