Please, everybody, take the time to report this company to the communications ombudsman(I am) They are an utter shambles. I’ve tried contacting them for over 3 weeks now without success. I’m not bothering with them anymore. Leave and go somewhere else. Any other provider has to be better than this shower.

Service drops out all the time. No customer service, almost impossible to make contact…then no help. it was fine with Post Office.

Reviewer V Galyer: Location GRIMSBY: Date 2022-11-12

Comments

My broadband account with the P.O was changed over Shell energy, the contract expired end of July 2022. I could not understand their charges to renew my contract so switched to BT, maybe not the cheapest provider but great service.
I returned the router ( supplied f.o.c by the P.O. )and received confirmation that I had sent them proof of postage. over 3 months later I am still receiving threatening e-mails demanding £35.00 for the router. I have spent hours on the phone and sending e-mails to try and resolve this matter but I am not going to waste any more time trying to reason with this useless bunch of morons, and will try to resolve this matter through the ombudsman. read more

I am sending this review on behalf of my Father in Law WHO is 90 YEARS OF AGE, he has never had broadband in all his long life, he had a post office phone which was ta k over by shell, he decided to have his phone removed as he never used it, shell are now sending him threatening letters demanding that he must return their router ( which he never had) now they are saying that they will remove £35 from his account (ILLEGAL) because he hasn’t returned this item that he has never had. We have rang them 3 times and they AGREE that they have never supplied broadband to his property, but yet these threating letters STILL turn up. What a disgusting company and if they carry on in this matter we shall not hesitate to SUE them. read more

Shell Energy Broadband reliability is nonexistent

Reviewer Jannie Adams, Location Romford: Date 2022-10-24

Comments

Broadband reliability is nonexistent. lose the signal about 50 times a day. will phone these arseholes tomorrow and cancel my dealings with them. I am sure they won’t miss me but I am sure there are probably thousands of people who think like me.

Reviewer Graham L: Location Coventry: Date 2022-10-24

Comments

This bunch of incompetent, inept idiots took over my fathers broadband from the Post Office. Due to illness in July I cancelled his contract and was told that 13 days of his monthly fee would be reimbursed STILL NOT RECEIVED. A month later they reopened his account and took £40, raised the issue with them, guess what STILL NO REFUND. On 4 occasions I have requested a returns label to send their router back, guess what NO RETURNS LABEL SENT. They have now charged £35 for the router, which I couldn’t return as they do not have the capacity to do something as simple as send out a returns label. Look for a bunch of incompetent cowboys to provide your broad back, they’ll still be better than Shell. read more

DO NOT USE SHELL

DO NOT USE SHELL. We have had the worst internet connection for months now and have even had to upgrade our phone contracts just to get online. We have contacted shell several times, who have done absolutely nothing to resolve the issue. They are now trying to charge us 273 as an early termination charge which I refuse to pay as I will not pay for a product that DOES NOT WORK!! LEAVE ME ALONE SHELL!!

HOW SHELL ENERGY F**CKED MY CREDIT RATING

Now after trying to resolve the problem with my account for over 6 months I have just received a phone call from Shell to tell me I don’t owe them anything BUT MY CREDIT RATING IS F**CKED What a load of incompetent fools ( not my first choice of words ) AVOID THIS COMPANY !’

The worst customer services

Shell energy broadband customer services are a disgrace. An on going saga of no service for 3 months, and even the complaints team cannot be bothered to call back at the time they arrange. Despite promises to stop taking payments, money is still deducted from my account. Engineers are sent who can’t fix anything and by their own admission are not trained to do the job they are sent to do, so many days work are lost waiting at home for their visit. Shell then have the audacity to charge you for a visit that that have sanctioned and require without any acceptance of costs or terms and conditions. Managers do not call back despite assurances that you will get a call. I would suggest that you avoid this internet service provider unless you have hours and hours to spend on hold on the telephone, or days and days to wait in for inadequate engineers, and you have no need for any Wi-Fi and you enjoy listening to lies and fairy tales. read more

Shell Broadband very slow or no connection for long periods!

Energy Broadband Reviews recently posted on broadband.co.uk

EXTRACTS FROM THE RECENT REVIEWS (DISPLAYED IN FULL BELOW THE EXTRACTS):

‘Can’t even login to my account. Was transferred to Shell when Post Office sold their phone and broadband to them last year. They must be the most incompetent providers on the market. Deal ends soon so I’ll be outta here!’: ‘Shell Energy are absolutely clueless and appear to know nothing about phones and customer service is certainly not their forte.’: ‘The worst company I have ever dealt with. Had no broadband since 20 May ( now 14 July). No explanation from Shell. They have not responded to letters or on- line attempts by myself. You wait on phone until you give up. Dreadful company.’: ‘Switched to Shell Energy Broadband. Lost my internet connection. Met with a wall of silence from customer services…’: ‘Disgusting customer service. In short I have had major issues with internet connection and phone line; the problem has mainly been since Shell took over from Post Office. Interrupted internet for 4 months and very slow or no connection for long periods…’: Do not use this company, you have been warned! worse than TalkTalk, Blatent lies about speeds…’ read more

Shell’s temperamental low speed broadband disconnecting 20 times a day

20 July 2022

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

NONE EXISTING Technical Support!

Our home broadband has been very temperamental recently, disconnecting no less than 20 times a day. Speed is terrible, a tiny bit more than dial up! I’ve been trying to get support with no luck, and the only reply I received was a week ago by email – that’s all. I’ll take the matter further by seeking legal advice to leave this contract before it ends. This level of customer service with such low speed is not acceptable in 2022! read more

Shell Energy sees complaints about broadband and landlines soar

This is MONEY

Shell Energy sees complaints about broadband and landlines soar, new Ofcom rankings show

  • Shell Energy received the most complaints from its broadband customers
  • Around two-fifths of complaints included faulty services and complaint handling
  • Sky keeps 10-year-streak for fewest mobile, broadband and pay-TV complaints
  • EE saw the least complaints for mobile and landline between Jan-Mar 2022

Households thinking of moving broadband and landline services to Shell Energy may want to think twice after complaints about it soared in the first three months of the year.

It received twice as many complaints than the industry average for its broadband services, according to Ofcom – and more than three times’ as many for its landline offering. read more

Avoid Shell Broadband at all costs. Customer ‘service’ is appalling

Save your brain cells.’: ‘Avoid Shell Broadband at all costs. Customer “service” is appalling, internet drops out multiple times per day & staff lie.’: ‘Shell bought out Post Office broadband and our Wifi has been terrible ever since. Our internet randomly stops working day or night, and often for an hour. I’ve never experienced such poor quality service with any other broadband provider.’ read more

Worst decision ever to go with Shell energy broadband!

Not the same since they took over from…

Not the same since they took over from the Post Office broadband, slow internet speeds and they even charged me for when engineer came to fix a problem and he never came into my house ! Worst decision ever to go with Shell energy broadband!

More stress and hassle from Shell

Following my previous complaint to Shell and paying 2 months balance which is the amount owed I get an email saying they are looking into my complaint. Still no reply and now a threatening letter saying they will cut off my internet. I made a call out request as Openreach left me and other properties without internet/phone for a week so still want a call out charge! And also charging me for a router as not returned even though I have a receipt of posting. I suppose they will say its an automated letter, WELL NO, ITS TOTAL INCOMPETENCE AS USUAL.
The phone lines are operated by computers so are a waste of time and after over half an hour on the phone last time I was given wrong information that contradicted what another person had said. And to top it all the braodband speed is well below what they promised. read more

Shell Broadband WiFi cuts out all the time

6 July 2022

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

Router is poor

The WiFi cuts out all the time and phone rarely connects to it. I emailed them 4 days ago and had no response. The online chat is always offline. I’ve been with TalkTalk and Sky and never had the issue.

simply appalling service

simply appalling service – broadband almost non-existant. Customer service even worse. Call backs promised and never materialise. Foillow up calls promised and don’t happen. Still no internet service over 2 months on. Hours spent listeneing to awful music waiting to speak to someone. No help again today after 2 hrs 50 mins on the phone. Avoid like the plague. Still take my money despite promising a refund, which like the phone calls has not appeared. deadful. Shame on you Shell. read more
