What does the service field want when creating a new DSL connection?

Its purpose is not immediately clear and there is no explanatory tooltip either. ISP tech support didn't know what it meant either, and Windows did not require the service name when creating a new DSL broadband connection.

Could it be just the display name? –  SimplySimon Aug 8 '13 at 11:19
