My main point with this is that the _entire_ flow is more standardized.
You generally do not need extensive chat scripts, you don't have heavily
customized PPP implementations or login methods based on provider, and
you don't have every provider using a different network selection method
for example.

It used to be with 56k dialup that every single ISP had a different
implementation of SLIP or PPP and required manual login, or custom login
scripts to auth yourself, or some supported K56flex and others X2, etc.

More direct hardware stuff will always be different, but overall the
system is much simpler because everybody standardized everything else
(ok, except Option with AT_OWANCALL...).
