Home Essentials

I have been trying to raise an order with BT to get My mother-in law  moved onto the Home Essentials Package. She is a 95 year old living on her own, in receipt of Guaranteed Pension Credit, with no other income. I have now spoken to   15 agents over a ten day period. Most have been very helpful, however none has been succeeded to get on order raised. 

Apparently  the DWP have approved the application. I have been through the order process on numerous occasions and had to listen to the accompanying  info which is part of the agents process.  The BT system then throws up an error. I have been given several reasons why this may be happening, but no one has been able to resolve the issue I'm starting to believe that BT don't want her to have this Product as it cheaper than her current landline  connection.

Has anyone had similar problems?

Re: Home Essentials

Is your mother in law an existing BT customer

Re: Home Essentials

Hi imjolly

I've been trying to order the Home essentials  package which would give her a digital telephone connection as well as broadband for less than she is currently paying for her BT landline.

Her financial situation fits the criteria as quoted on BT website.
