With a hardfork, we need to wait for all wallets to upgrade, otherwise all we get is the launch of a new coin, like BCash. With SegWit, upgraded users can start to benefit from a blocksize limit increase BEFORE all wallets have upgraded. Therefore SegWit is a faster blocksize limit increase than a "simple hardfork".
Those saying SegWit is too slow compared to a harfork, are misinformed or spreading FUD.
