This paper presents simulation results of a model aimed to obtain uniform functionality and performance of the services provided within a healthy smart city. Simulation results were useful to demonstrate the model usefulness and the possibility to enhance the quality of the services. However, this enhancement was observed in a generalized manner, and it was not yet possible to concentrate efforts in those zones with the poorest quality of service. Further work is needed to achieve consistency.
