Somewhere between 2000..2005 I personally still delivered customer
connections that needed that. But we were providing 64kbps still to
some odd locations, like paper mill in the middle of nowhere. I also
needed to do MLPPP over 2*64kbps so that serialising single 1500B
doesn't take too long (PPP could fragment it to two and send parallel,
improving UX).
