My elderly parents have a BT broadband package that they want to change. However when I try entering their postcode and landline number to check what is available in their area I get the message that their landline and postcode do not match. We have been told by the provider they want to move to that this is a BT issue, that it is common and that there is an issue that BT need to sort out before they can change provider. My mum has tried calling BT but they deny there is an issue. To be honest I'm pretty fed up with the way they have been treated as an elderly couple. They are paying £48 per month to BT for broadband and linerental. This is not even fibre but standard broadband and now they want to change provider they seem unable to. Any advice as to what I can do would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

is there address and postcode correct on royal mail database?
Hi there, yes it is correct on the Royal mail database and it is also correct on their BT paperwork. It's infuriating. The chap my mum spoke to at BT was more concerned with trying to offer them a new package than trying to help but after the not so great deal they gave them last time (see original post) she is really fed up now and wants to move but it seems she can't until this issue is sorted.
