The big bonus here is that jitter isn't a factor -- Having an additional 400ms delay on a voice call is extremely disruptive, having the same on a data transmission is barely noticeable.

This allows a wireless network to accommodate data traffic much easier then voice, at least until someone starts running VoIP over a cell phone's data ...

When you're arguing with a fool, make sure he isn't doing the same thing.
