do not think that this is possible as your connection is linked to your home telephone line

Yes, it's possible. Just access your ISP on your laptop when away using your username and password that you would normally use at home.

You cannot connect to your ISP, only to get E-Mails. You still need a hot spot to connect if you are wireless

You can not connect when your away because your connection is linked to your home telephone number (ISP uses Calling Line Identity). David

Yes, I thought (don't know why) the question was about e-mail. For general internet use, it won't work (unless, as woodchip says, you have a wireless card and can find a wireless "hotspot").
