I suppose that the six extra bytes for MLPPP reduce the packet payload
by 6 bytes/packet, and that theoretically slows things down.
In practice, I haven't noticed any difference at all.
Actually, now that Bell's throttling is thwarted certain members of the
household do nothing but Bittorrent Ubuntu ISOs all day long. Now
*that* slows down traffic for the rest of the family!
