New Radio Frequency Uses

Recently the FCC auctioned off
parts of the radio frequency spectrum
that were freed up with the transition to digital TV
. Can someone summarize exactly what happened and what those frequencies are being used for?

I have a suspicion that the emergence of the 3G and 4G networks are a result of this frequency freeing up, but I've also heard about Google wanting frequencies to be free, and there being controversy about that, and I've heard rumors of super-routers and all sorts of other interesting new technology. There is so much information out there that I'm getting confused researching it and I'm hoping someone more familiar with it can sum things up.
