New sleek, décor‑friendly design aimed specifically for hotels

Hotels and hospitality venues continue to look for ways to deliver better wireless experiences for their guests. For most guests, great wireless data coverage on site is expected to keep them connected during their visit. A hotel’s wireless data performance can either make or break a guest’s experience. Sprint is here to help with newest edition of our multi award-winning Sprint Magic Box which debuted last year.

The new Sprint Magic Box – Hospitality Edition, designed and manufactured by Airspan Networks, is the first all-wireless small cell produced specifically for hotels. Small, yet powerful, it connects to a nearby cell site and dramatically increases download and upload speeds by 200 percent on average for Sprint customers[1] and it extends in-building coverage up to 30,000 square feet, about the size of half a football field. This allows guests to have a better streaming, app and download experience on their Sprint devices while on site without even connecting to the venue’s Wi-Fi.

The new addition to the Magic Box family was designed with feedback from the hotel industry in mind, with a small footprint and simple, neutral design to tastefully fit with various hotel décor. Each unit features a white faux-weave design on the sides and either a wood-grain or grass-like top for a more natural look.
