Telcos are facing big competition in wireless broadband in the form of wi-fi. They paid big sums of money to buy 3G spectrum, but deployment has been slow and customer uptake even slower. The first networks are still being rolled out.
In the meantime, users and companies are setting up wi-fi hot spots in airports, cafes, hotels, streets. Companies are setting up roaming capable wi-fi networks in a entire CBD.

Have a look on this ZDNet article about this new chip.
