What you could do is this:

Setup Asterisk at your house.

Setup a teleconference with Asterisk.

Setup a phone at home that's always linked to the teleconference, then
to make a call:

Dial into the teleconference with your mobile.
Dial out from the teleconference with Asterisk.

When you get home, pick up your teleconference phone and hang up your mobile.

It would take some coding to get it all happening, but it could be
setup in a way that is easy to use.

btw. Skype is evil. eBay bought it and stated in their press release
they will be using it for direct marketing, so find another VoIP

Nice. In Australia that's the fastest net you can get and if you can
find a provider that offers over 100GB/month you're doing well. That
plan you're on would be US$800/month in Oz for a home user or
US$2,000+/month for business, so no one would bother offering it.
