UFB connection will most likely lower latency if your ADSL isn't all that great. From what I understand Second Life is like an MMO? The server that is serving you has more to do with the speed and stability however.

If you have a 20Mbps ADSL line, you will barely notice the difference, especially with interleaving off. If you have something like a 6 or 8 Mbps line, the change would be like night and day.

Downloading of assets/models/textures and updates will be much faster no matter how fast your ADSL. My first comments were referring to general game play. When downloading an update the difference between 19Mb/s and 95Mb/s will be very noticeable.

If you can get that 5Mb/s to something like 30Mb/s or 50Mb/s on the newer technology, it will again be like night and day. 4G is probably going to deliver the "fibre like" service. :)
