    if one is a website with a top domain such as .com and another is a sub domain based web page, if both are equally promoted, which would rank better?

    If both are equally promoted, it shouldn't make any difference. Since one is a home page, and the other is an interior page, they will probably be promoted for different keywords. If they have similar subjects, the main page would be promoted for one root keyword, and the sub-domain promoted for a related long tail keyword. This could result in both pages being ranked for the root keyword, but the main page would be ranked higher. Of course, this may not qualify as being "equally promoted", since they are being promoted for different keywords.

    Are you talking about a webpage with a URL that would be a sub-domain of the provider? In a case like that, you may not have access to the HTML code of the web page, so could not complete the on-page optimization. So, no matter how many backlinks you get, or where they come from, there could be something preventing the sub-domain based web page from ranking at all.
    However, if we hypothesize that both websites are fully optimized, and there is nothing in the code of either one that would prevent them from ranking, the domain should not make any difference.
