The internet has buzzed for weeks over rumors that Sprint was prepared to release an all new micro cell device. Marcelo made rumor into reality today, introducing the Magic Box from Sprint
Magic Box is Sprint's next generation signal booster that isn't actually a signal booster at all; it's a small indoor cell which dramatically increases data speeds and reception. Magic Box is a true plug and play device: independent and easy to set up. You don't need a router or a hardwire line either, simply set the Magic Box up near a window, plug it in and enjoy improved Sprint Speeds to every corner of your house in just minutes.
Magic Box makes all this possible by leveraging Sprint's own 2.5 GHz and 1.9GHz spectrum and backhaul to create an indoor small cell. This is great news for our customers living were home internet service can be scarce.
