With client-side includes the particular piece of data only needs to be
retrieved once.  This reduceds bandwidth.

HTTP/1.1 allows many entities to be downloaded with a single connection by
using keep-alive.  Thus there is no extra cost in making addition
connections, only 1 is needed.

Server load is further reduced by having the client ``assemble'' the
document.

Given all these considerations, I don't understand why anyone would want
to use server-side includes if a client-side include option were
available.
