Of course it rewards broadcasters, but this delay might ultimately help spread spectrum (such as 802.11). By the time the broadcasters actually give up the spectrum, maybe we can persuade the FCC that 3G/4G/etc. is a dead end and that low-cost neighborhood wireless networks can use the bandwidth more effectively.
