I find the web unusable without Adblock+, especially on my kiddie-grade 5Mbps max WISP connection.

I don't. I have a simple proxy.pac file that sends a few annoying advertiser domains to use a proxy connection on (and for US-access only sites, hits my local ssh proxy to one of my US servers).

I should also note that I travel frequently (Monday through Friday) and I am often on mobile Internet.

but they can't determine that Billy Bob had a rough 4th of July weekend, and it would be best to have him do his paperwork today instead of working on the electrical junction box that has water damage.

Some also use it to prevent tampering.

So why aren't there more cases of encryption impeding an investigation?

Perhaps some of those people people whom use encryption properly are more law abiding.

Yeah, we've got this thing with the major ISP (BT) where you can get free wireless at hot spots around the world (FON) by ticking a checkbox that sets aside bandwidth on an open SSID on the router. The IP remains the same,

The IP doesn't remain the same, please don't lie. Additionally, you have to login with your BT details when on said system, which uniquely identifies you, no matter which hotspot you're using.
