I had a similar setup at one time, I believe it was from Speakeasy but I
can't remember, might have been a Covad beta with another provider that
my late wife was working for when ADSL was brand new.  Not saying it
can't be or isn't done; just that for the vast majority (probably
something like 90% or more) it isn't.
