IANAL, but a basic reading of the T&C's suggest that you can share the
connection provided its not for financial gain.
There is nothing there that sayes the contract only allows the the
person paying for the service to be the only person to access it. Just
that you cannot sell the service on, and that you are responisble for
the actions of anyone using your connection.
The assumption would be that you are authorising the other people to
access the internet through that connection in the same way that you
authorise other members of the household to access it.
