Worst internet company on the market

I have been with shell energy for 3 years and can honestly say it is the worst company I have ever dealt with.

After 2 years they cancelled my contract without my knowledge. I then found out that this resulted from my neighbour accidently putting my flat number which resulted in them terminating my contract. After opening a new contract I experienced a variety of different problems such as my bills being higher than what the contract states and my internet was running significantly slower. The customer service here is appalling.

With all these issues arising every couple of weeks I was constantly on the phone with customer service, every person I spoke with told me something different and I was constantly being told to speak with different departments as no one knows what they are doing. They reopened several contract for me with out my permission and when I wanted to leave the company due to all the hasses and no revolment of any of these issues, they then told me I had to pay for the full termination fee because it was a new contract. As stated above I did not agree to cancel or reopen my contract several times and i now should have been in my original contract for 9 months meaning I should only need to pay for the remaining 9 months ( it is a 18 month contract). But shell energy is insisting I pay for the full 18 month termination fee. I would highly suggest that everyone stays away from this company as they are only looking to scam and make more money read more

As a vulnerable disabled person who is very reliant on a reliable WiFi, Internet service I totally regret signing up with She’ll Energy as it’s extremely unreliable

Reviewer Gerald: Location Northern Ireland: Date 2023-08-15

Comments

It is beyond absurd the way this company have treated me. After dialogue with this company about renewing my contract I was assured on multiple occasions that the new rate was in place however they continue to charge me at my old rate hence the multiple staff members I have spoken with simply did not do their jobs as they assured me it was changed yet it has not after multiple assurances. What kind of company employs staff who are simply not doing their jobs and lying to customers? I will now seek legal advice in relation to consumer rights as this company is simply not providing what we have agreed upon in the terms of our agreement. Truly shocking in this day and age that a company treats a customer like this.

Absolutely crap! I was lured by a £95 amazon voucher. The speed is OKish but the router keeps disconnecting my devices and then has a fit itself. When I got the router out of the box I thought it was off wish.com, very cheap looking and apparently also in its operation. I am looking to move next year and am seriously thinking about ‘buying” myself out of the contract early read more

Utterly awful. Pathetic router which just can’t hold a signal or broadcast to anywhere other than the room it’s in. Far too expensive for the speed you actually get and useless in terms of customer service. Avoid

Had no problems until i decided to switch, my broadband suddenly developed a fault and was constantly going on and off, no help whatsoever from customer support, I would advise against using shell energy broadband awful service and poor speeds waste of money cowboy outfit!!!

For me the issue with Shell Broadband is mainly their customer service. If will offer you no grace if you need to change contract and it will always be in their favour. They will charge you FOR EVERYTHING. Admin fees, routers, sending routers back. I consider them the easyjet of flying. read more

Had the misfortune of being sold Shell Broadband by Currys

Reviewer Jas: Location: Leamington Spa: Date 2023-08-08

Comments

Had the misfortune of being sold Shell Broadband by Currys. I really wish I had trusted my instinct and walked away from this. I do NOT recommend the service to anyone. It was installed on 7th August and by 8th August I have cancelled. I have had to pay an early termination fee which I see as deplorable. The customer service was atrocious from the moment I made calls on the day of install. Avoid at all costs. It cost me £300 to terminate early and although it is painful – it is the right decision. Don’t touch this with a barge pole!

Reviewer Derek: Location Glasgow: Date 2023-08-05

Comments

Completely useless.

Broadband continually drops out for minutes at a time during the day making watching Netflix or streaming a painful experience. When it is working the speed is ok.

Have been without a working phone line since installation and the web chat and initial phone support are worse than useless.

Current waiting for an Openreach engineer to visit but no idea when as the complaints department haven’t got round to telling me if one has actually been booked or not.

The worst broadband service I’ve had in 15 years and 10 at this property. Bitterly regretting moving from my previous provider. read more

Placed my order on the 3rd, order was cancelled by openreach on the 10th, she’ll failed to communicate this at all, even when I rang on the 10th. Advised I had to wait until after the 14 day cooling off for install (absolute rubbish as plusnet installed within 2 days of order)
Called on the 21st and was told my order was cancelled, no manager able to speak to you, no complaints dept takes in lunch calls. Useless company I wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy DO NOT BUY FROM THEM! read more

Hasn’t worked properly from the get go and it’s hard to contact customer service as they give you the usual “go online and let the chatbots or help options see to your needs” rubbish. How can I go online when my internet isn’t working? Basic logic fault. Whether it’s the router or exchange problems god alone knows as the Qube guy couldn’t fix it.
I’ve had no reliable connection since I switched provider to Shell. Nearly 2 weeks now. I’m disabled and need a decent service to stay connected. I wish I’d stayed with my previous provider now. At least when I had power cuts the router would reconnect automatically. I’m frustrated and disgusted. read more

The worst customer service I have ever experienced in my life. I would strongly advise you to steer clear of Shell Energy. We have been unable to use wifi for two months and I call about twice a week to follow up on my litany of complaints only to be told there is no issue.

They refuse to let you talk to the complaints department and after a month of numerous phone calls they finally promised to send out an engineer. My two housemates and I waited at home for two days and no engineer arrived. We are being charged each month for a service they do not provide.

Ever since I moved to shell energy the wifi keeps dropping out and line speeds are super slow, no where near the fibre I am paying for. Two openreach engineers have visited, the last one saying they cannot find a fault in the line and the issue must be the router, since shell rent the line from talk talk. Shell initially refused to send me a new router but after contacting them again they agreed. Now waiting for new router to see if it fixes the intermittent and very slow broadband. read more

Very unreliable at times. Customer service absolutely terrible. I eventually left for a better provider and had a terrible time trying to get a final bill.

Many phone calls where they had told me I hadn’t returned the router (I had) and several final bills which included charge for non return of router. I asked several times for correct bill and they eventually without warning referred me to collections agency. I called the agency immediately and they had the correct amount which I paid over the telephone immediately. Avoid this company Poor Broadband and extremely poor customer service. read more

Nightmare. I only found out that the post office internet had been sold to Shell after investigating why my Internet had started to run slow and keeps dropping out all of the time. It’s been down for 5 hours again today and I am lucky that wasn’t during work. Expecting to get no help again from customer services.

very disappointed as we work from home they couldn’t sort my problem over the phone. Was clear a problem with router, asked to send a new router to sort the problem instead they said a booster would be a better option. 8 days until receive the booster that still not sorted my problem. My only option was sign up to a new broadband that actually works with better speed and took them 1 day to come here and install everything. Shame on shell and shame I still have 10 months left to pay for internet that is weak and no need anymore. don’t go for shell read more
