BST is doing this for two other reasons, also. They've been accused of warehousing the spectrum to prevent competitive uses, and several commentors in the AT&T/BST merger proceeding have asked the FCC to order spectrum divestiture as a condition of merger approval. If they don't roll it out (or at least announce it) now, they'll be more at risk of losing it to someone else. Second, they claim they're using it in areas where DSL can't reach becuase of the +- 18K foot limitation.

Full disclosure: I represent a CLEC in the AT&T/BST merger proceeding and am opposing unconditional approval.
