What is the legality of providing free/cheap wifi to neighbors?

I live in a townhouse complex, what is the legality of broadcasting an access point that gives free or possibly cheap internet? Barring your own internet providers' stance on sharing internet, are there any permit requirements, legal issues that may come up?
I'm thinking a redirected portal page that comes up, so no advertising other than the AP name. Possibly free low speed and nominal charges for full speed.
Would this be something that would warrant something more than a slap on the wrist or a letter from the homeowners board saying "don't do that?"
