Treated like dirt by Shell Energy Customer Service

“I’ve never done a review before but wish I’d believed these 1 star reviews prior. Shell energy has an unreliable internet connection, and I felt like I worked for them and not the other way around as they treated me like dirt…”

Terrible Shell Broadband Wi-Fi, virtually unusable

31 July 2023

I have had terrible Wi-Fi, it’s been virtually unusable

In all my years using broadband, this has been by far the worst Broadband I have ever, ever experienced. It has been impossible to stream the most basic movie on an iPad. Even the online newspaper stops and if you buy this. Get used to the swirly circle, as it’s all you ever see. Shockingly bad. Wi-Fi is virtually none existent. I’ll be amazed if I can send this review without it stopping and losing all the data.

Broadband that never materialised

Broadband that never materialised! Terrible customer service. Transfered from department to department. Each tech support blaming the other. Eventually blaming a fault on the line which mysteriously appeared when Shell took over!? THERE IS NO FAULT ON MY LINE. Oh and now illegally trying to charge me over £300 for cancelling early even though I’m still in the 14 day cooling off period!? Disgusting.

Absolute bunch of liars

I have been with this company twice in recent years and have found them wanting on both occasions. They have held on to my money that was in credit, lied to me on numerous occasions that it had been paid out, even told me a cheque had been issued but still no refund. Lied to me that I had accessed my account when it was them. I still do not have resolution after 5 months. They have refused to log a complaint until last month and have had nothing but what can be described as abuse. It will be a good day when this business is sold. read more

Utterly Crap Shell Broadband

17 July 2023

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

Possibly the Worst Broadband Service Ever

I cannot find words to describe how utterly crap Shell Broadband is. In all my years I have never experienced such an appalling service. Every evening it would vanish at midnight when I needed to work. Why? No other provider does this. Constantly dropping out, it is an unreservedly derisory service. If it’s not enough to be screwing the planet and raking in vast profits in a cost-of-living crisis (oh and also still trading gas with Russia), they can’t even operate a half descent broadband service. At your own peril… read more

Failed broadband activation- Third complaint

Activation date 27th June – No broadband. No updates, apologies from Shell, no emails, no notifications. I complained on this forum yesterday and requested to speak to a manager. I was told by Sara I would receive a call from the team as soon as possible. Sat in all day yesterday and of course received no calls whatsoever…

I’ve now had to resort to contacting Openreach for updates…

Shell, you are an appalling company of blatant lies, deceit, fobbing off and misinformation. Shame on you. read more

Shell BROADBAND speeds are terrible and the connection keeps going down

Comments

Shell took over from Post Office broadband. Since then the internet service has got worse and worse. The speeds are terrible and the connection keeps going down. Last straw was when they suspended my account by mistake and admitted it had been their fault. Now raising prices at an inflation busting rate. Avoid

Institutional investors back Shell board lawsuit over climate risk

By :

LONDON, Feb 9 (Reuters) – A group of European institutional investors is backing a novel London lawsuit against energy giant Shell’s (SHEL.L) board over alleged climate mismanagement in a case that could have far-reaching implications for how companies tackle emissions.

ClientEarth, an environmental law charity turned activist Shell investor, said it had filed a High Court claim on Wednesday, alleging Shell’s 11 directors have failed to manage the “material and foreseeable” risks posed to the company by climate change – and that they are breaking company law. read more

Shell threatens Greenpeace protestors with jail and fines: But legal tactics fail as Greenpeace sends second boat and more climbers

Shell threatens Greenpeace protestors with jail and fines: But legal tactics fail as Greenpeace sends second boat and more climbers

Greenpeace International: 6 February 2023

Action pics and video available here, with updates throughout the day. 

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Shell has attempted to silence Greenpeace International’s peaceful occupation of its oil and gas platform at sea, by hitting the campaign group with an injunction late on Friday, February 3, threatening up to two years’ jail time and fines.[1]

But today, Shell’s heavy-handed legal tactics failed, as Greenpeace International successfully went ahead with plans to escalate its protest by adding two more climbers to occupy the company’s oil and gas platform – using other boats unaffected by the court order.

Protestors are demanding that the company stops expanding oil and gas production around the world, takes responsibility for fuelling the climate crisis, and pays up for the climate destruction it is causing everywhere.

At around 9am (CET) in the Channel, the Greenpeace France-chartered Merida trimaran and two small boats approached the White Marlin heavy-lift vessel, which is carrying Shell’s 34,000 tonne oil and gas platform to the North Sea. read more

Climate activists across world raise funds for the court case against Shell

Climate activists across world raise funds for the court case against Shell

Friends of the Earth Netherlands: 20/01/2023 | 16:25 PM

In 2021, thousands of Dutch citizens took one of the largest carbon emitters in the world to court and won. Together with Friends of the Earth Netherlands (Milieudefensie) they won a historic court case against Royal Dutch Shell, the parent company of Shell Group, forcing the company to take climate action.

The judge ruled that Shell’s current climate policy would contribute to a level of climate change that would be so dangerous that it would impose a threat to human rights. read more

My service with shell went live on the 1st Nov 22, a few drop outs of service occasionally, but nothing major, it did not affect streaming or kids gaming etc, so we can live with it. The 9th December was the last day of any broadband (I miss watching Netflix on a big screen) The router is just displaying the information light and nothing more, its not making any attempt to connect, so I make all the required checks, resets, switching it off etc to no avail. I get through to Shell quite easily and the tech guy seems genuinely helpful, line tests carried out etc and says open reach need to come out which will take 3 to 4 days, but nothing is confirmed until I hear from them. I explained that I felt the router was probably the issue and questioned if it would make more sense to have a new router sent out first rather than waste time and money on an engineer, he says its not possible. read more

Shell Energy described as ‘Spectacularly Incompetent and Useless’

Worst company I’ve ever dealt with

Worst company I’ve ever dealt with, they don’t communicate properly, their online systems aren’t managed properly you can’t access your accounts or even set up an account, the customer service team transfer to wrong department multiple times because they couldn’t be bothered to deal with the query. Rang 3 weeks ago to let them know we moved into a property and update all the details, all the meter readings were given and I rang back today and they have no recollection or any details of anything. Unprofessional uneducated staff throughout the company. read more

Large-scale polluter Shell loses legal battle

Large-scale polluter Shell loses legal battle

The Guardian: Isabella Kaminski: Thu 29 Dec 2022 12.00 GMT

Between 2004 and 2007, the villages of Oruma, Goi and Ikot Ada Udo in Nigeria were polluted with oil from infrastructure built by Royal Dutch Shell. More than 15 years later, in late December, the company finally agreed to pay four farmers and their communities €15m in compensation and install a leak detection system after a court in the Netherlands ruled that Shell’s Nigerian subsidiary was liable and the parent company had a duty of care. read more

Shell to pay 15 mln euros in settlement over Nigerian oil spills

AMSTERDAM, Dec 23 (Reuters) – Shell (SHEL.L) will pay 15 million euros ($15.9 million) to communities in Nigeria that were affected by multiple oil pipeline leaks in the Niger Delta, the oil company on Friday said in a joint statement with the Dutch division of Friends of the Earth.

The compensation is the result of a Dutch court case brought by Friends of the Earth, in which Shell’s Nigerian subsidiary last year was found to be responsible for the oil spills and was ordered to pay for damages to farmers. read more

Another departing Shell leader seeking redemption?

Departing Shell Plc CEO Ben van Beurden seems to be seeking redemption in his closing period with the energy giant.

THE GRONINGEN SCANDAL

BvB now admits that Shell should have pulled out of the controversial earthquake-blighted Groningen project operated by NAM – a Shell-Exxon joint venture company.

According to Reuters: “A damning report in 2015 from the independent Dutch Safety Board had accused the government and the field’s operators of ignoring the threat of earthquakes linked to the field for years.” 

As regular visitors to this website know, we have been drawing attention to the Groningen scandal for many years. Thousands of properties have been damaged. As a consequence, Dutch prosecutors are pursuing litigation against NAM. Tens of thousands of Groningen residents are eligible for compensation for earthquake damage. read more
