Read *latency* is fully expected to increase if you just add a node.
*Throughput* should increase, unless you have a workload that manages
to be more expensive on RPC than actual reads/writes.

Latency would only be improved by additional nodes under some significant load.

How are you benchmarking? Are you concurrently submitting requests to
all nodes at the same time? Try using from the Cassandra
tree as a comparison.

If you're sending one request at a time, there is no expectation at
all of a performance improvement - just a decrease in performance.
