I would guess that for the most part ISPs provide a pool of addresses
to their subscribers and your connection will obtain a new IP
dynamically when it connects. If you have a static IP assigned to your
connection (you are usually charged extra for this, at least in the UK
you are) then the ISP may allow you to change the rDNS for that IP
address as it is "owned" by you (but they might also charge you an
admin fee for changing this).
