I sometimes find kppp to behave better for mobile broadband than 
NetworkManager, e.g. faster on detecting connection loss and re-dialing.

Occasionally I also need it if I need more control over setup options.
E.g. when resuming I sometimes have to re-insert my PCCard UMTS modem and it 
gets a new device node. NM doesn't handle that correctly and its UI doesn't 
allow to specify a device name.KPPP's UI does.
