[RndTbl] Really old MTS Internet drop?

Friends of my parents have had MTS Internet service for a decade or more
(probably more).

They told me that they have a coax cable in the room with their computer
(an IBM Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, to give you an idea of the age of this setup;
they had MTS Internet service before that in an older computer) AND that
this coax cable plugs directly into their PC.Has anyone seen this sort of
setup? I didn't look at it myself; this is just what I got from them over
the phone just now.

Are they mistaken, or did MTS in the past provide a PC card with a coax
connector for Internet access? It's possible that they didn't recognize an
Ethernet cable, but I did explicitly ask if it was connected to the
computer with a screw-on type connector which they confirmed it was.
