Definitive ppp.conf

I have looked at lots of examples of /etc/ppp/ppp.conf but there seem to be many variations of parameters, several of which I don't understand and wonder if they are actually necessary.

Is there anything like a definitive guide to ppp.conf explaining what each option does. For example some have timeout set to 0, the sample conf has it set to 180.

Also what should the speed be set to?

And how do I determine which device should be used?

Do I need to specify phone, authname or password, when using broadband?

Everything should be explained in ppp(8). Is there anything specific you want to know?

I basically want to know what I'm doing wrong :)

/etc/ppp/ppp.conf
Code:
default:
 set log local Phase Chat Connect LCP IPC CCP CBCP tun command
 ident user-ppp VERSION

 # Ensure that "device" references the correct serial port
 # for your modem. (cuau0 = COM1, cuau1 = COM2)
 #
        enable echo

internet:
        set device /dev/cuaU0.0
        set timeout 0
        set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \
        \"\" \
        AT OK-AT-OK \
        AT+CPIN="" OK-AT-OK \
        ATH OK-AT-OK \
        ATE1 OK-AT-OK \
        AT+CGDCONT=1,\\\"IP\\\",\\\"3\\\" OK \
        \\dATDT*99\# TIMEOUT 40 CONNECT"
        set ifaddr 10.0.0.1/0 10.0.0.2/0 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.0
        add default HISADDR
