We are using it mainly as an aid in debugging since we have sometimes clients with *very* poor internet connection (for example from Africa).

Also we are considering to use it to detect extremely badly GeoDNS routed clients and maybe as a test platform for clients to aid our further GeoDNS decissions.

I think this feature is not a silver bullet that solves all the problems but it can be usefull in some cases and should be easy to add to stream in nginx and to any other program.
