How much extra overhead is there with a cisco VPN tunnel? Do I lose bandwidth capacity

If I setup a VPN tunnel with a 100 Mbps ISP connection on both ends.  Is it safe to say my VPN tunnel link has a bandwidth capacity of 100 Mbps?  What are the pros and cons of using a VPN tunnel vs. using a MPLS link of smaller bandwidth capacity?

Hi,

HOW many is the MTU on the ISP, what type of VPN do you use?

We are most likely going to have Cisco ASA's on both ends.  The mtu on all interfaces are set to 1500
We are looking to use AES-256 bit encryption.
