The only BIG difference and advantage for me: The wife and I can both watch streaming movies, without it glitching. Steam downloads are 8x faster (average 2gig in 3min). And, with a low ping, I'm not getting fragged as much in multi-player games. We can all use the internet and I'm not hampered when uploading to servers. As far as generalised internet stuff. Pages do load a lot faster BUT pages etc will only load as fast as the server's alotted bandwidth. Downloading backups etc, are still coming down at the same speed (throttled?) as they did when on ADSL2+. So no major benefit there, other than upload speeds.
