Non expert reply:  Yes it will do what you want.  You do
not need to pay for the DID.  "Iconecthere" will let you
make as many outbound calls as you want for a flat 2.5 cents
per minute plus a small monthly fee.  Higher monthly fees
buy you prepaid "free" minutes.   That $8.00 allows _inbound_
calls from PSTN, not needed for outbound calls 

I can make multiple outbound calls at the same time BUT my
DSL bandwidt quickly maxes out.  (I'm testing with home ADSL)
and things go bad quickly.
With a good megabit level line OR if you move your
Asterisk server to a "co-location facitity" and use their
100Mb/s connections you could make MANY outbound calls at once.
