It's a godsend for people who are remote or very far from the exchange.
I've gone from not even being able to play a simple Vine clip without buffering to being able to stream a HD movie without having to download it first!
0.9 Mb was my old DOWNLOAD speed and now I average mid 30's!!!

From the DP News blog:

"Nearly one in four UK adults do not have basic online skills, and some regions of the country are excluded from the digital world almost entirely, according to a new report.

According to the survey, people in London, Scotland and East Anglia were the most capable online, while parts of Wales were among the most digitally excluded. The research was combined with other social factors - including education, income and health - to create a heatmap of digital exclusion for the UK.

Conwy in Wales and the Scottish Highlands were among the areas ranked highest for exclusion, according to the results.
