What's DAB for?

I understand why the broadcasters want DAB. They control all the masts and can cram more channels in the spectrum. But what's in it for me?

I can use FM, which sounds better than DAB and which degrades gracefully, or I can use the Internet, with a hugh choice of channels (including small players who can't afford a slot on a DAB multiplex) and sound quality comparable to DAB.

What's the use case for DAB?
