Absolutely,  You are not tied to any Internet provider.

It depends on the technology the ISP uses.  From what I have seen --
with DSL over telephone copper + splitter (TI, MTNL, BSNL etc.), it
will be RJ11 coming in to the modem with RJ45 + optional WiFI on the
LAN side.   Cable Internet providers will have the TV cable coming in
to the device with RJ45 for the LAN  side.  The local "hack" Internet
providers will pull in RJ45 LAN cable into your premises and give you
a standard WiFi AP wherein the "WAN" port is where they plug in their
RJ45 cable.
