How to set up a PPPoE connection

PPPoE connection is a DHCP server connection. PPPoE means Point-to-Point Protocol over Either. PPPoE is the way to provide internet connection among different users at the same time. Basically, It is popular among ISP providers. PPPoE is the modified version of PPP which was famous in the 80s to 90s for providing internet. When internet providers give internet using PPPoE they need only one server for multiple clients. PPPoE has a big advantage for internet providers because they can share internet speed when they provide internet using a PPPoE connection. It means they create a PPPoE server for some users who want 2mbps speed. When they create a server for 2mbps users they set the maximum 100mbps for that server. Now they give 60-70 user connections from this server. So if all users connect at the same time they will get less than 2mbps speed. So in this PPPoE connection users can get low speed.
