Sprint has a lot of high-frequency capacity to carry fast data but far too few transmitters which will have to be densely located to make use of this frequency.

So Sprint is already implementing a sneaky and curious new program to greatly increase their number of high-frequency small cell transmitters by offering their customers a free "magic box" for their home or business. They want you to place your "magic box" next to a window - not for you, but for everyone outside of your building.

A Sprint "magic box" is a cell site which connects to your network and uses your electricity.

It provides you faster wireless data service, along with everyone else within a block or two. If you request a "magic box" but do not plug it in or return it, Sprint will charge you $140.

So long as you keep your "magic box" fed and connected to your network it's "free" - but it can't improve your voice call quality, only provide a faster data connection because unlike T-Mobile, the Sprint network does not implement VoLTE voice over data, currently (Voice over LTE) but with a new phone Voice over 5G.

The 260,000 Sprint "magic boxes" already distributed are 4G-LTE but 5G "magic boxes" are a few months away.
