Sure. I live in apartment building and get Ethernet to my router (actually, to my Linux machine), with simple static IP assignment (no DHCP, PPP, etc). I can also get routed networks up to /28 if I need it for small additional price.
Apartment building is connected by 10G fiber to my provider's hub which is connected to the main national Internet traffic exchange ( http://www.ua-ix.net.ua/eng.phtml ). It's simple and fast, and works great in dense residential areas.
In contrast, I have to pay $50 a month for 30/5 cable connection when I live in Brooklyn in the US. And it's still considered to be pretty cheap :(
