I’ve been with no internet during 5 days. They do not answer emails and if you try to contact them you will need to wait minimum one hour and they will just tell you wait untill midnight and if it does not work after that call back…

the worst broadband providers in the UK

These are the worst broadband providers in the UK. A total shambles in every department. Threatening letters to pensioners are something companies did back in the 70’s. Check social media for many more customers regretting ever switching over. Awful people. Terrible service. Download speeds from the days of dial up. read more

HOW SHELL ENERGY F**CKED MY CREDIT RATING

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

Automated threatening phone calls from Shell Energy

16 July 2022

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

Threatening automated phone call

If you have broadband and homephone from this company and pay quarterly be warned. My bill was sent out late and I paid by return of post. The money was taken from my bank account and I thought no more about it.

Then I received a suspicious automated phone call threatening to cut off my phone and broadband. Thinking this sounded like a scam particularly as payment was requested over the phone I phoned Shell to point out someone was making scam calls on their behalf, since I knew I’d paid the bill. But it was not a scam they were deadly serious. ‘Bills were sent out late and it takes a while for payments to be received in our accounts’.
What a pathetic response from Shell! I’d expect a commitment to send bills on time, set realistic deadlines and to cease threatening automated calls. Was this irrelevant response also written by a machine?? 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

BROADBAND customers thinking of switching to a different UK provider have just been given a helping hand.

By DION DASSANAYAKE

A new study has taken a look at the leading broadband providers in the UK and ranked them on how many complaints they receive. The figures, from regulator Ofcom, has revealed how many moans Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as Virgin Media, BT and Sky received in the first three months of this year.

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

‘Whatever you do just avoid these people… I was a post office Internet customer before they handed me over to these guys… absolute waste of space. Go with literally anyone else. 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

Terrible broadband and customer…

Terrible broadband and customer service. They kept dropping the internet/landline connection and it took nearly an hour or longer to speak to anyone about it. They made it almost impossible to work from home because of it. I finally left Shell but they owe me money as I am in credit with them. On 19th June I was told that they have processed the refund and that the money will be transferred via bacs payment in 5 working days and I’m still waiting! Their agents are completely unhelpful and “there are no mangers to speak to”. read more

Terrible Broadband Provider

Terrible Broadband provider.

Not had any service for months even though paying for high speed fibre, I have been on the phone for literally hours every week only for them to keep telling me my fault has been resolved.

This morning was the 4th time I’ve taken time away from work for an engineer, to fail to turn up or even call me.

After an hour on hold this morning, they advised its not possible for me to speak to a manager, to make a complaint, or basically do anything to resolve the situation. read more

Shell Broadband is slow as Hell!

Shell Energy Broad Band

Shell Energy Broad Band! This is a contradiction in terms…as you’d be better served With “Dile-Up! Shell Broadband is slow as Hell! Completely contrived and manipulated speeds shown in adverts. BBand speed will be ok for the first couple of weeks then just goes all to Hell.  You will then call cust service who will be absolutely, adamant that you are a HIGH USER!!… I live alone! and connect only my phone and TV to ‘WiFi’. As it’s so slow, I try to use one or the other…doesn’t help. 20, to 30, minute call waiting, time (20, mins at VERY BEST…and all you will hear is “you’re a very, heavy user! You NEED to upgrade”. Don’t use Shell…dreadful Custservice, dreadful product, with no recourse, when issues arise. (If you’re reading this, you are probably in my distant future and I am long dead…as probably, took decades, to up-load). read more

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

Another fine mess by Shell Energy

“Its like Fred Carnos Circus run by people with no idea on how to treat customers.”: Avoid at any price!: wouldn’t trust Shell to boil an egg.”

Another fine mess by Shell.

Just had my first bill after changing to fibre broadband and it should have been £32.88 per month. I didn’t get a first bill and was told I was in credit from paying in advance for my original broadband package of 2mbps with Post Office when it was migrated.
So no get billed is £196.54!!!! I ring and spend over half hour talking first to a computer then to Nazeem who says I had a call out charge added. I said yes as Openreach left cables to 5 houses disconnected after moving a telegraph pole. I was asked again if I requested a call out, well obviously as I had no phone/internet! Nazem contradicts a previous message that said if the engineer is called out for any reason there is a charge! Shell already paid me a weeks compensation for loss of service and yet I am still billed. Also no mention of how much I was in credit from my pre-change-over contract. Its like Fred Carnos Circus run by people with no idea on how to treat customers. As someone else said, another Talk Talk type company. Avoid at any price! read more
