It's pretty cool. I wish it were Google Assistant instead of Alexa though. I've already gone all-in on the Google Home ecosystem.

Which side of the gen 3 magic box should be aimed at the donor macro for best signal?  Front (screen side) or back?

The back, non screen side towards donor site (tower). As far as the direction of b41, I can receive it around 75ft in all directions(maybe more).

Is there a big difference between the 2nd and 3rd gen magic box. In my home my magic box says Band 41 (Low). This is near the window where signal is best. I get like -107 to -116 dB. Anyone know if gen 3 would make a difference?

The "Low" doesn't refer to the signal quality, there is Band 41 High and Band 41 Low - just a frequency thing. 

That's a decently usable signal, I wouldn't expect anything really noticeable out of a Gen 3.

    • So many groups have made up their minds first, find facts to back them later.  In a more straightforward article would want to see the models assumptions in detail.  The article quotes Dish, whose role is typically to drive up the costs of mergers.  Without Dish doing that for the purchase of Clearwire, there possibly could have been billions more for Sprint network expansion or lower prices.
    • All small cells that we have seen in Ohio have a PCI of 450 or greater.
    • I still think that the prices will be more in mind for Verizon and AT&t. Honestly to build out a maintain and expand the network of that caliber and size you need obviously more money from your revenue source which is consumers. So in these higher prices to build out the network and to maintain it it cost lots and lots and lots of money I do not see prices going lower. They would not be turning a profit they kept prices where they are.

    • I agree with you but I could see them get in trouble with their wording. On https://newtmobile.com/ it states  I could see them come back and say well lower than Verizon and AT&T...
    • You obviously need to have higher prices to build out a better Network it obviously does not come cheap.
