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.

4 days later open reach have attended and my line is fine, now ringing customer service at this point consists of being hung up on several times, being rudely advised I don’t understand the royal mail strikes, being told that Shell won’t even consider me sending a courier to collect a new router, let alone them send it via a different courier, so that new router I suggested 4 days ago is going to make its slow journey to me only now.

Complaint made, call handler was actually understanding unlike her other colleagues. I have had a credit made to my account which is great. However 11 days of no broadband later, new router is here and it’s not working again, not even attempting to connect and yes I call Shell and I get through easily enough and tech guy understanding and pleasant but it’s been 11 days without any service and Shell are just going to send yet another router in the hope that I have had just been extremely unlucky with my routers and a third one will do the trick. So day 11 of no service after only joining them less than 6 weeks ago. Man I wish I had stayed with Vodafone now, dam cost of living trying to tighten my belt and save a few quid, well it has certainly backfired!!!!

I’ve used Shell/post office for about 7 years now and had the same box, generally I have no complaints as it has ran ok but speed could be better.

A couple of months ago it went down and I called Shell a couple of time because it was unusable so eventually they said we will get an engineer out. Then the box started running fine again and they never turned up but my wife waited in for them.

And now box has gone down again, I called Shell and their customer service was very disappointing as the guy put me through technical and whilst I was on hold they all finished for the day.

So the next day I cancelled my contract and gone with someone else.

They did say a while ago I may need a new box so that was all I want but they seem reluctant to give me one.

I wouldn’t bother using Shell

Shell Energy Broadband as I was with the GPO and had excellent service with them! Shell are A rip off Energy company who want us to pay Five Grand per year for our energy they are a,Rip off so call Vodafone on 08080408408 and had hey they will save you a Fortune as Vodafone are a lot cheaper and shell are worser than Kcom!!
