We derive the average block error probability of multicell code-division multiple access (CDMA) packet networks with fast power control under multipath fading. Unlike many previous works, we consider that users are connected to a base station on a minimum attenuation basis. An analytical approach for the calculation of the intracell and intercell statistics is presented. By making use of these expressions, the mean block error probability is analyzed as a function of the number of resolvable paths and the number of base stations to which mobiles can connect.
