After going thru' ,looks like there is no straight answer on whether PPPoA or PPPoE is better or faster.

Actually if only for browsing purpose , you could not see any different, am I right ??
But we are talking about downloading other stuff <blink>
The settings of PPPoE or PPPoA actually depends on the ISP.In general most of broadband connections from PC to modem uses PPPoE.The main difference of PPPoA and PPPoE is the connection settings to the DSLAM.

The speed of downloading difference between PPPoA and PPPoE actually depends a lot on the core network of the ISP.Streamyx generally uses ATM for core network but I believe they are slowly shifting to IP core network in the future as it will be the same throughout the world.Correct me if I am wrong.
