BT, Policies & Profit vs understanding and humanity

My 88 year old father died recently and he was the account holder for BT.  My mother received an unexpectedly high bill and could not pay within the timeframe. We are still trying to sort out hter pension and my father's estate.  Although BT were notified of this, they disconnected her phone.  She is 86 years old, disabled and unwell.  She has an emergency call system to call family or the emergency services but this does not work without the phone line.  She lives alone and is still mourning the loss of her husband and now is cut off from the outside world.  I offered to make a payment immediately, agree a payment arrangement and clear the balance as soon as the estate is sorted out.  Apparently 'policy' prevents BT from being able to do anything about it until the amount is paid in full.  Well guess what??????? PEOPLE, write policies and good companies have high level permissions that can override policies.

I have asked a moderator to provide assistance, they will post an invite on this thread.

 

Once you get a reply, if you click on their name, you will see a screen like this. Click on the link as shown below.


Please do not send them a personal message, as they may not be on duty for a long time, and your message will not be tracked properly.
