Currently on a 8 day Hawaiian cruise, and despite being just 20 miles offshore from one of the most cellular intensive countries in the world (same for my Italy/Greece cruise this past winter), there is virtually no 4G/5G coverage, so that means no internet and no internet banking.  You can log in, but your bank's server will typically kick you off any time the satellite internet drops for a few seconds.   Not so for the blockchain fortunately.

Thank God and Satoshi that my finances aren't missing a beat because our various hardware bitcoin wallets don't log out and reset everytime the spotty ship/satellite internet drops.  Aue, aue!

Forgetting another thing is not having to exchange your money from USD to any fiat money, you can use BTC everywhere. "Maybe the level of dollar acceptance is better now but things may change."
You do not even need the internet to send coins. "need to rely on a third trusted party."

On the bad side, the Internet will evolve rapidly to cover all over the world.
