Generally the advantages are that 1) there is no contention you will ALWAYS get the 1mbps of bandwith from the supplier. 2) The circuit has a much higher SLA attached, people will be looking to fix the line 24/7/365 depending on the agreement and 3) its generally the same speed in both directions so there is no concept of upstream and downstream.

And its generally over fibre in most cases rather than copper although this isn't always the case.
