The first and foremost benefit is that you can have, in the hub site, enough bandwidth to support the sum of access speed, and CIR, for all the branches, without worrying about splitting the branches in groups to map into a single link.

Also to consider, redundancy due to the multiple links, and efficiency compared to an ATM/FR solution, due to the much smaller overhead.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
