The goal is, that if you are inside the "homezone", you can be called on
a land-line, which is much cheaper for the caller. At the same time,
your calls are cheaper, for example you could have a flat fee, which
only works if you are inside the "homezone".

o2 startet with this to replace the need to have a real land-line at home which costs you at least around 20€.
