I think you'll find it ends up being a lot more cost effective having an
ISP provide this service. Sure the actual costs are low but the support
for a number of phone lines coming into a Linux box would be much larger

You could always try ISPs like Telstra who are always into a bit of
positive PR. We've had some success here in Sydney getting costs-only (ie
bandwidth charges which they have to pay upstream anyway) permanent
connections for community groups.
