Open my eyes to proper broadband

After years of broadband with low download caps (currently 14gb/month), I finally will have 120gb/month from next month. How to take advantage of this new freedom?

I'm computer-savvy and know my online stuff, but I've always gone the conservative route when it comes to online download limits. A year ago my limit was 6gb/month. Now it's 14gb. From next month I will have 120gigs (50 peak / 70 offpeak), at decent speeds (20mbps).
Apart from obvious things like online gaming, video calls, streaming media, downloading, and so on (all of which I do to some extent already), can you suggest internet applications, sites, software, downloads or functions that would previously have been impractical but now are within my reach? I'm wondering if there are any novel online things that I might not have realised because of my light usage history.
Thanks in advance!
