It yields a higher user quantity with less real estate, in other words, you can setup a base antenae (cellular) with multiple anteneas and have it handle more users with single antenaes than having two bases.... there are numerous studies done that reflect the use of mulituser MIMO in wireless as well as the standards it was designed for.

Here's a really well written article that explains it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-user_MIMO

I'm no expert, but recent studies have shown that incorporating MU into the mix willl enable better expansion of the 3G LTE technologies quicker to a broader band of users.  see this article:

does it make wireless speeds faster?

it's not necessarily an issue of making wireless speeds faster, but more along the lines of the ability of the ISP to make higher speeds and technologies available in a wider area with less.
