if a Dish TMUS deal gets done lets hope TMUS can come out with an LTE/satellite wifi hotspot that would allow me to use my phone to make VOWIFI calls when I'm at my hunting camp and only AT&T works.
Other good options for T-Mobile would be Sirius XM. With all new cars becoming LTE connected the Siruis service could be sent to the car using LTE and hand-off to Satellite when you drive out of LTE coverage.
Evercore: Sprint will need to raise another $3B in capital

"We now model [Sprint] having to raise an additional $3B of capital over the next 3+ years to both continue investing in its network and fighting to attract subs," predicts Evercore's Jonathan Schildkraut, reiterating a Sell on Sprint (NYSE:S). "We believe this financing will come as debt given [Sprint's] low stock price and the likelihood that SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBF) would not want to dilute its holdings."
Schildkraut assumes Sprint will have calendar Q4 free cash flow of -$1.3B, leading to full-year cash burn of $2.95B. He adds Sprint's participation in the FCC's huge 2016 incentive auction (widely considered necessary due to Sprint's relatively weak low-band spectrum portfolio) "could result in the need to raise even more capital.'
As it is, Sprint had $27B in net debt at the end of September (compares with current equity of $20.3B). Aside from price cuts and 4G investments, postpaid subscriber losses (272K were lost in calendar Q3) have been contributing to cash burn.
all the cable company's have been in Bed with Sprint for years. I would be surprised if they bought T-mobile and competed head to head with Sprint. If they wanted to do that they could have done it years ago.
The Point is having the option for WIFI calling improved the T-Mobile Network Experience. Maybe I'm reading your post wrong but it seems your not impressed with the announcement. The biggest issue with all of the major players is in building coverage where most calls are made. Wifi calling helps solve that issue
Go buy Sprint Stock. Good Luck
