    I requested one, but I'm not a business. Requested for my residence address which admittedly has very weak Sprint signal-- but barely usable.
    So it may help. Might help neighbors too. Anyway, seems unlikely I'll qualify but I like the idea of it. -Dan

    Has anyone else had follow-up from Sprint? I received a voicemail on Friday (Jul 14th) from a very chipper Sprint rep telling me that Sprint felt that my home address would benefit, and I would be "one of the first" to receive the Magic Box when it ships "in about 8 weeks" and that I would receive another call or text at that time to confirm the shipping address. I was given no number to call back. Still haven't heard anything back about my work account.

    So... they say 8 weeks... I'm thinking I may be enjoying this thing by Christmas... possibly New Year's... maybe Easter lol

    Once I do get it I'll post a review...

    I'm an employee. FINALLY received an email two days ago with shipping information. They had a "soft launch" sign up directly for employees and I was one of the lucky few to be selected. Should be receiving in a couple days. I'll post with results!

    I hope this can somehow turn the tide for Sprint.

    Could a Boost customer request one?
    The Romans didn't find algebra very challenging because X was always 10.

    Probably not. They asked me if I was a business customer which I am. I'm not in a band 41 area, but I'm not sure if that matters.

    Unless you expect them to put these in every other house, it's not going to "turn the tide" for them.

    Well it can use B25 as backhaul and transmit a B41 signal. If they just plugged one in an extra outlet at the base of every cell tower, they'd technically have B41 or "LTE Plus" at almost every cell site..
