In this letter, we propose to use repeaters to increase system information capacity in urban areas, where path loss exponents are higher (as much as 3.4 or more). There is at least a 10% increase in coverage area when repeaters are placed in every cell within the network to increase system capacity. The overall system information capacity is doubled at propagation exponent 3.7-3.9.
