    You can if you are over 18 in the UK.
    You have to be over 18 as it's a credit agreement.

    i think you can just tell them you are renting there, and the owner has no internet but you want it.

    I've had services connected to other peoples properties many times.

    If you can live with the slow speed.

    Will your parents not allow you to keep it if you foot the bill?

    If any wiring needs to be done it would require householder's consent. Other than that it remains your contract and obligation and can be in your name no probs at all.

    If you live with your parents and are over 18, technically you are renting at a rate of $0.

    Worst comes to worse you could always chuck your neighbors some money towards their internet bill to use their wireless. I've had to do that before, they were more than happy to help.
