Wired links are allowed to be used across boundries for no more than 500
Meters according to the telecommunications act. Wireless was not usable
at all over any distance without a carriers licence until a recent
ministerial determination allowing wireless to be usable commercially
within the same property (such as a Hot Spot).

If you have a look at the Telecommunications act revisions, or the DCITA
website, the details are there.

A service providers AUP will determine if you can share a connection,
but the Telecommunications Act can determine by what method.
