I've never seen DHCP used on residential DSL circuits.. it's all PPP (oA
mostly, and oE if you want) in this country (which the telco picks up
and sends as L2TP to the DSL provider).  I get alocated my /26 and it
doesn't matter which LNS I connect to or how I get there (indeed I can
talk L2TP directly to the provider to connect over 3G etc.).

We do have providers that charge extra for static IP (although it's not
as common as it used to be).  I just wouldn't pick one that did so as
it's not justifiable IMO (my current one gives me as many as I can
justify at no cost).
