Shell broadband speed is glacially slow

29 June 2022

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

Avoid at all costs

I didn’t ask to be a Shell Broadband customer. I signed up for Post Office broadband, but Shell bought them out and existing PO Broadband customers were forced to migrate to Shell or pay an early termination penalty.  Shell customer service is hopeless, you waste huge amounts of time on the phone trying to contact these people, the broadband speed is glacially slow (and my broadband was meant to be fast but it was hopeless).  I’ve just got rid of them and had to pay £157 for the privilege. Don’t even think about becoming a Shell Broadband customer, it’s not worth the time, money and stress. It’s a rip off. read more

Was switched to shell when previous company went bust. shell by far are the worst company I have ever delt with . 2 visits to fit a smart meter. Sending me a letter saying they have to increase my direct debit to over £400 a month way UNDER my usage.as I will not pay a ridiculous amount each month I cancelled the direct debit and simply pay each month for actual energy used not a penny more not a penny left. Shell have marked my credit file a month in arrears.but not updated it for over 3 months. Customer service is awful they simply too big to care as soon as I am able to switch I will be leaving my money be better spent elsewhere read more

Bombardment of complaints about Shell Energy Continues

14 June 2022

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

Very poor company, terrible service

Very poor company, ridiculous estimated bills, avoid at all cost

Terrible company

Terrible company, poor customer relations, threatening text messages when I have upped my direct debit with them every month and make one off payments which they don’t seem to apply to my account. It is impossible to speak to a human being, you have to leave your account number and phone number on an automated line with a promise of a call back that never comes. I have done an online enquiry form disputing what I am paying and don’t even get an acknowledgement. I have so far paid them £511 this month alone yet my balance has gone up not down. This company are an absolute joke!! The sooner I can move supplier the better. I am only with them because pure planet went bust and I was automatically moved to shell. They clearly can’t cope with the new volume of customers but are more than happy to take our money! read more

Shell Energy under investigation for not informing broadband customers their contract was ending

The energy company alerted Ofcom to problems in how it communicated with customers last week.

By Linda Howard: Money and Consumer Writer, 2 MAY 2022

Shell Energy is being investigated by the communications regulator for not telling customers that their broadband contracts were coming to an end.

Ofcom opened an investigation into whether the energy giant complied with its rules on communications with customers on Friday after Shell Energy contacted them about potential problems. read more

AVOID SHELL ENERGY AT ALL COSTS

AVOID SHELL ENERGY AT ALL COSTS

27 APRIL 2022

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

Absolutely terrible customer service

Absolutely terrible customer service. When you ring every agent tells a different story they promise to call back and don’t . Very frustrating just can’t get passed young uninformed agents and they won’t pass on to a superior just can’t get answers !!

AVOID this supplier at all costs

Shell Energy caused me untold problems when I moved out of my flat. Instead of closing the account after I’d paid in full, they kept the account open, continued to charge me AND the new tenant so essentially running two accounts on one property. Given I wasn’t living in the property and having passed on all the details of the new tenant, Shell kept texting me to tell me to make a payment, eventually threatening me with creditors, despite not living in the flat, and having paid in full on my departure. This situation was incredibly stressful, and it transpired that the new tenant was ALSO being charged. In the end she had to pay two bills, one of £333 for the bill in my name, despite me having left months ago plus her ongoing direct debit. That bill was eventually refunded but it took months to get it resolved and in the mean time Shell was charging two customers for one energy supply which is terrible. Therefore my advice is AVOID SHELL ENERGY AT ALL COSTS. read more

BP and Shell record mega-profits as firms exploit soaring energy prices

BP and Shell record mega-profits as firms exploit soaring energy prices

RECORD gas and oil prices since the Ukraine conflict have helped deliver bumper dividends for shareholders in energy companies.

By TOM HILL

13:56, Wed, Apr 27, 2022 | UPDATED: 13:57, Wed, Apr 27, 2022 Both gas and oil prices had already been pushed up over winter as supply failed to keep pace with demand bouncing back from the pandemic. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine prices have been squeezed even further with oil soaring past $100 (£79.64) a barrel to heights of up to $130 (£103.52). The increased revenue from energy has helped deliver soaring returns for investors with the oil sector seeing dividends rise 29 percent in the first quarter of 2022 according to data firm Link Group. Link points to an “astonishing rebound in oil prices” which it says has “delivered a dramatic turnaround” for energy firms. The contribution of energy firms helped drive up UK dividends by an average 12.2 percent on an adjusted basis.

Among the top 10 dividend payers for 2022 are Shell, BP and National Grid.

The growing profits for energy firms has attracted criticism given the UK’s current cost of living crisis with some calling for a windfall tax on the gains.

So far though the Government has dismissed the idea with Justice Secretary Dominic Raab calling the idea “disastrous”. read more

terrible broadband, terrible customer service

Got broadband through Shell. Speeds are far less than what was advertised, the internet routinely cuts out for extended periods of time, and is generally barely usable. Waited more than a month for a response to email. Customer services are mysteriously always “experiencing a higher number of requests than normal right now” when I want to talk to them. read more

Terrible, the internet is on and off, when you call the customer service, it takes more than 20 min and then they never find a solution for you.
