I am not sure if there is any good way using native bluetooth app that ships with ubuntu but I am going to use a pretty old app called blueman.
install it using
sudo apt-get install blueman
Now from untity search for blueman and you will get bluetooth manager click on that and you will get window and blueman service will be enabled.
now you can see two bluetooth icons on top panel of unity. one will be native and other will be blueman's
click on blueman's icon and click local services.
Now from the window click network. and enable Network Access point, click apply and save it.
Now you can access internet using bluetooth of your computer after pairing them and connecting.
