Shell broadband is the worst…

This is the worst company I have ever dealt with.
I moved house, asked them to cancel my account and send me a bag to send the router back. I had to call them 11 times to ask for the bag and nothing arrived. I returned it at my own expense. They threatened to take £35.00 for the router from my bank account which I cancelled. Luckily I had proof that I sent it back. Will never ever deal with these people again. It was a simple request that they made extremely hard. read more

Shell Crap Broadband Reviews: 15 Jan 2022

SHELL BROADBAND

15 Jan 2022

I have had to pay to leave my 12mths contract with Shell Energy Broadband early, which is a disgrace given the terrible service…

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy Broadband published on Trustpilot.

By 1pm Broadband failed twice today

… only 1pm and already today the broadband signal has failed to travel the space of less than a metre from the router to my laptop. If you want cheap broadband from Shell Energy, make sure you have loads of wires available to be able to rely on a signal to your devices. Otherwise you will be disappointed with the service. Only 3 more sleeps and I will have a new provider. I have had to pay to leave my 12mths contract with Shell Energy Broadband early, which is a disgrace given the terrible service I have received over the last nine months. I have been advised to contact Ofcom, so this is on my jobs to do list read more

Shell Energy have not got a clue! Absolute clowns

Shell Energy have not got a clue!

Shell Energy have not got a clue! Apart from overcharging their customer service dept is horrendous! They overcharged us…then reimbursed us…then demanded the money again!! Absolute clowns. Do not sign up to Shell Energy peoples!!! Stick with British Gas.

A shower of cluelessness

I needed to upgrade my main fuse and was told by my network supplier that my energy company (Shell) should’ve upgraded the tails when they installed my smart meter. As they hadn’t, I rang to try and arrange them to be changed. After being on hold for 15 minutes I spoke to the first operator who seemed clueless as to what I was asking and transferred me to EV tariff team who (unsurprisingly and after a further hold) also didn’t know what I needed. They passed me back to customer services who (after another 20 minutes on hold) again seemed confused and gave me a phone number for the smart meter installers. I rang them who said any appointment needed to be organised by Shell and referred to them! Nobody but Shell is allowed to touch the meter tails so I’m completely stuck because of their cluelessness. read more

I’m so angry and I hate being lied to by Shell Energy

By John Donovan

I first heard from a very disgruntled Shell Energy customer, Mr John Wood, in 2019. He was one of the people who encouraged me to launch the shellenergy.website

John was delighted and greatly relieved when his nightmare contractual relationship with Shell Energy came to an end.

Unfortunately, his celebrations were short-lived. The company he switched to went bust and without his permission or consent the energy regulator switched his account back to Shell.

Shell Energy, a company he had come to despise, was forced on him. read more

Shell Energy Intermittent Broadband

12 Jan 2022

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy Broadband published on Trustpilot.

WiFi is terrible

WiFi is terrible.
1. It always drops out
2. Have reported previously, only just got an engineer out
3. They ask you to do engineer type work before sending one out
4. If anything is not as they think it should be, you will get fined
5. The engineer was supposed to come on Friday, Monday or Tuesday as we agreed and they showed up today, on a Sunday saying they were supposed to show up on the Saturday but it got too dark? Not what we agreed
6. The engineer complained they had to find out from two poles which caused the problem
7. If you are not in on the appointment day you get fined.
8. Go elsewhere it took over an hour on the phone and my partner having to do basic engineering which he isn't trained or paid for!
9. Make sure to ask for a transcript of the copy of conversation in the form of a subject access request and a written transcript of the conversations which only managers can do read more

Diabolical! Utterly useless customer services!

Account Chaos Causing Worry to Disabled 83 Yr Old Person!

Diabolical!
Utterly useless customer services!
Shell Energy set up my new account after my supplier went bust recently. They didn’t tell me or ask me, and as such they’ve inadvertently used the wrong email address and have linked my account to another pre-existing one. The 83 yr old disabled gent who’s had 2 strokes is now experiencing stress and anxiety due the apparent lack of ability to resolve this problem they have created.
Trying to resolve it is incredibly difficult – feel like I am dealing with people who do not care!  Furthermore there is no telephone help, the web chat doesn’t work, and they ignore emails. The only option is via Twitter messages, but the staff I’m dealing with appear to be useless. It’s shockingly bad, I’ll have to complain to OFGEN. read more

Shockingly poor broadband service and even worse customer service. Unethical. A complete disgrace

07 Jan 2022

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy Broadband published on Trustpilot.

Not even worth one star

The worst I’ve ever seen. Wifi drops and won’t reconnect for up to an hour (so far) no matter what I do, you have to stand next to the router for a strong connection, calls made with wifi drop randomly and either don’t reconnect or reconnect and are then patchy and bad quality and you can’t use it for games or calls if another person in the house is doing the same. Absolutely terrible company and I’d advise anyone who’s thinking about getting with them to look literally anywhere else. read more

Trustpilot verdict on Shell Energy: Utterly incompetent, Utter shambles

07 Jan 2022

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

“DO NOT switch to Shell Energy under any circumstances. They miss-sell their products and service; they clearly don’t honour the deals that they sell. They are woefully incompetent, not friendly, not helpful, certainly not professional.”

Utterly incompetent

Utterly incompetent worse than Green energy who went bust, now lumbered with this useless company who dont have a clue, and refuse to give readings information against the regulators code of buisness. read more

“Unbelievably awful. Left without WiFi now for several days…”

Reviewer s rashbrooke: Location – Tiverton: Date 2021-12-31

Comments

DREADFUL company, apparently switched by Uswitch, loads of agro as when I moved to my new property there was no landline & cottage needed rewire & refurb. This meant that shell could not & did not supply any service. Since then Ive been hounded for connection fees. Now with the Ombudsman. In my opinion this company is beyond belief in their lack of customer service. Advice dont touch. read more

Bitter experience has taught me never to trust Shell Energy

By John Donovan

I first heard from a very disgruntled Shell Energy customer, Mr John Wood, in 2019.

John was one of the people who encouraged me to launch the shellenergy.website

Extracts from the file of emails he sent to Shell Energy in 2019 about his particular issues with the company are printed below. They include a long list of repeated apologies he received from Shell.

John was therefore delighted and greatly relieved when his nightmare contractual relationship with Shell Energy came to an end. read more

Eleven days without Internet, fobbed off by Shell Broadband

We have been without internet for *eleven days* over Christmas now, because Shell have messed us around, passed us from pillar to post, lied to us, and shown complete disregard for any standard of customer care…”: “kept us waiting for over 45 minutes on their premium rate helpline…”

Disgraceful Service

We have been without internet for *eleven days* over Christmas now, because Shell have messed us around, passed us from pillar to post, lied to us, and shown complete disregard for any standard of customer care. The tracking number that they have given us for the router they supposedly sent out (dispatched *over a week after we first called them*) is not recognising any parcel. They could have sent us one straight away by courier, but instead they fobbed us off, asked us the same questions multiple times over, kept us waiting for over 45 minutes on their premium rate helpline on more than one occasion and blatantly misled us about when their helpline was actually open. These are to name but a few examples of the utter incompetence, negligence and cost-cutting we have been subject to. read more

Shell Energy Overpromise, under deliver, and line own pockets

Overpromise, under deliver, and line own pockets: No telephone number on their website, no way to contact them over the phone. All comms go to a chat which dies after waiting 6 hours.

Overpromise, under deliver, and line own pockets

No telephone number on their website, no way to contact them over the phone. All comms go to a chat which dies after waiting 6 hours. Every conversation they are only focussed on creating up to date bills and not correct issues. I was transferred from Green by Ofgem, the first bill was incorrect as was estimated. Having given updated meter readings over 3 times a new bill was updated but the original was still classed as pending on the account. was told this bill would be corrected and overdue amount will be cleared within 48 hours. This was advised twice now and everytime I contact after wasting a further 6 hours to get through on the chat, I am only asked for more meter readings (be this after 2 days) yet the account still shows as incorrect. AVOID unless you want to be chasing your own tail. read more

Shell Broadband …probably the worst service you could ever have the misfortune to have to pay for…”

They have no idea. …

Had more problems with broadband again having been with them for six weeks, when you finally get through after 40 minutes of waiting you are speaking to someone who doesn’t really know anything other than doing three simple tests, today the expert had me hold the small button in the back in for a minute, and then wondered why we now have no passwords or data in router unit, so about to go into Christmas and absolutely no Wi-Fi for the TV streaming and broadband, thank you shell…..probably the worst service you could ever have the misfortune to have to pay for and I have absolutely no hope of getting it put right. read more
