This seems related the Idea #2813 , Network Profiles, to enable/disable/change services and settings based on the network you are connected to.
For example, on the Work LAN, CUPS is set to a default printer and network drive is mounted, and using the more-expensive data-modem many background-data are stopped (CUPS, NTP, torrents, updates, etc)
