Broadband connection with BT top up service

My sister signed up to a 12 month contract with BT on her line rental taking out a top up system so she could control her bills. This month I gave her a PC to use and she was wanting to connect to the internet via broadband. The line is broadband enabled as I used it when I was in the house but that was cancelled a year ago with virgin.

She called up to get connected but was told because she was on that tarrif she could recieve a broadband connection until her 12 month period is up in October and she could only connect via dial up.

I dont understand why this is so because surely can you not just go to another company and sign up to a new broadband connection? She wants to join with Tiscali. Does anyone in the ofrm know why this restriction is happening?

It appears that BT will not provide or allow BB on a line with that here
