I don't think you'll gain anything useful using the old network service,
plus NetworkManager is more integrated with systemd so I'd use it.

NM also writes your global network configuration to the same files as
the network service (/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/) now so you can
configure network interfaces the old way and use them with NetworkManager.
