The basic answer is you probably cannot easily. You would have to get a contract with the local Internet Service Provider (ISP) to "rebroadcast" their Internet connection (no, you can't just use the Internet connection you already have through them). Next, you would need to set up the infrastructure. For instance, you would need weatherproof wireless access points that meshed together and were tied into the power and the Internet somehow. They would also need to be laid out in a manner that would allow them to cover for each other without interfering with each other. Next, you would need to use software to manage all of them (signal strengths, traffic rerouting, load balancing, etc.) Finally, you would need to set up a system by which people could access your devices in exchange for money.

There have been numerous cities that have tried a project like this. Most have scrapped it as impractical. Research what cities like Philadelphia, PA (USA) did to try to get it to work.
