In your part of the world, yes. I've encountered setups (iirc in
Denmark?) where the telco terminates their line as an RJ-11 and an
RJ-45. You can then plug into that either a router that talks PPPoE on
an ethernet port, or directly into NIC in your computer and talk PPPoE
there. This is where PPPoE clients like rp-pppoe and their ilk come into
play.

You can even do (rudimentary) sharing of the ADSL by plumbing it into a
hub. Any other client connected to the hub can kick off a PPPoE session.

Not many telcos do this these days I think..
