Especially as more and more ISPs/telcos hand out WLAN boxen of various
kinds - after all, once you have some sort of Linux (usually)
networked appliance in the user's premises, it's quite simple to
deploy more services (hosted VoIP, IPTV, media centre, connected
storage, maybe SIP/Asterisk..) on top of that.
Slingbox-like features and mobile-world things like UMA are also
pushing us that way.
