Telcos buy more spectrum for overpriced services while competition to their overpriced cable TV services goes off the air. I'm all for going to purely IPTV, but not until the US has respectable Internet delivery. Comcast is the only combined TV/Internet service in town. Their contract is that you pay them lots of money and they guarantee nothing. You can upgrade to business-class service, pay them more, and they still guarantee nothing. It makes ADSL2+ and a rooftop antenna look pretty good.
