A networking course that I follow briefly mentions Layer 2 and Layer 3 MPLS. I understand the difference between them.

However, the question is, are L2/L3 MPLS like two different services that we can purchase from our ISP?

If so, based on what would we choose, whether to use a L2 MPLS or L3 MPLS?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, exactly.

That depends on many factors. Your network topology, the capabilities of the network equipment, traffic flows, redundancy, etc. Every network is different and has different requirements.
