Awful signal from Shell Crap Broadband

Shell Energy Broadband Reviews posted on broadband.co.uk

Reviewer: Jamie: Location: Herts: Date: 2021-11-16

I agree with others don’t touch them with a barge pole. Awful signal, have had to concede and pay to be let out of the contract. Grumpy and impatient customer service, no doubt in part because they must have so many disappointed customers to deal with. Should never have made the change. Especially given the damage the company has done to the environment over the years, I should have known better. AVOID.

Reviewer: Paul W: Location: Herne Bay: Date: 2021-11-16

The broadband speeds have never matched those that I signed up for, never even reaching the lower end of the range. Since beginning of October I am sometimes operating on less than 1Mbs. Customer service take more than a week to respond and the chat service can’t intervene with an open complaint. Six weeks of seriously substandard service, although, of course, they do regularly take the monthly subscription. Shocking, do not touch this company! read more

A complete scam. They offered me a quality internet and it never gave up. And when I wanted to go out with them they sent me a bill for 337 pounds. Not even gasoline will I buy the shell again. They are thiefs.

Reviewer: Susan: Date: 2021-11-18

We only got it installed last few days after being harassed by staff in Curries informing me I’ll get same as sky for less £. Absolute ********.
Avoid Shell broadband….forever on phone to them with no results and threatened with penalty if breaking contract….money well down the drain. AVOID THEM LIKE a PLAGUE. read more

The worst customer service of any energy company ever

customer services is non existent
never answer the phone or email

Completely useless

Completely useless, my elderly mother’s phone line wasn’t receiving incoming calls and despite several days of hanging on a phone hers and mine, could not contact anyone. Tried the website which again is so poorly laid out found a chat option but it wouldn’t let you leave a message on any browser. Have had to get the Careline company to adjust their box so that they can speak to her if she has a problem. Would give no stars if it were possible. read more

Shell Broadband is to be avoided at all costs

Do read broadband.co.uk before you consider Shell Broadband. Months after we exited their ‘service’ after broadband speeds far worse than anything we have experienced in the previous decade and more, and paid a hefty early leaving charge, come the ‘collections’ department months later who have been leaving emails and calling because we owe them £35 for their lousy router. Do not, repeat do not, go anywhere near Shell Broadband.

Shell Energy Broadband nothing but trouble from the start

The worst company ever

I got broadband with them and have had nothing but trouble from the start they scammed me their customer service is the worst I’ve ever had to handle. Don’t waste your time go elsewhere avoid at all costs

Disgraceful and unapologetic Customer Service for errors

The Broadband provision was fine and during my contract term I only needed to contact Customer Service once, which was when I found it not the easiest company to contact and slow to respond. BUT my big problems started when I invoked my right to switch provider at the end of my minimum contract term. read more

Shell Energy a Terrible company, avoid at all cost!!!!!

12 Nov 2021

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

Don’t set up account with them they will scam you !!!

Terrible company, avoid at all cost!!!!! They couldn’t set up my account for 10 months which means I couldn’t pay any bills for all this period, on top of that they set up a wrong tariff and charged me more for energy. Randomly after 10 months, they send me a bill for £539 and demand to pay it immediately and contact them immediately to solve the case because they charge me too much, and they pass on my details to the debt collector Zinc. Now they are harassing me with calls and letters, and Shell is not replying to my emails when I ask them when I will receive the correct bill! They just clearly don’t care they only care about money and will use all tactics to scare you to pay even when they know they made loads of mistakes along the way. Funny they couldn’t set up my account for 10 months even longer when I look at the time when I opened an account online, but they passed my detail to the debt collector company in 2 weeks !!!!!! Total scammers. read more

Hoodwinked by Shell Crap Broadband

8 Nov 2021:

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

Wow – so not my experience

Wow, these reviews are good. I was hoodwinked into taking out another year as a ‘technical’ IT guy came on the line & said he had ‘adjusted’ it so SKYPE would work now. I know, I’m a fool to believe this trick. It doesnt work, nor does streaming & the broadband is so slow it cuts out trying to download photos on facebook. I just wanted to cancel the rest of the contract, as I’m now using a works line for everything but the cancellation fee is for the full contact length. ie I’m stuck with a crap service until July. BEWARE – no scruples about taking your money for nothing. read more

Appalling Company, Shocking Service

4 Nov 2021:

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

Appalling company

Appalling company, customer service is non existent. They emailed me to inform me that I had requested a change in my tariff, which would result in an increase in charges. They could/would not provide the evidence that I had made this request (because I had not) and ignored my emails requesting information regarding such but instead continued to email me to advise my tariff would be changed in line with my request! They did not provide a working smart meter from the beginning of the contract as stipulated in the terms and after 3 months of my regular emails and phone calls to them requesting that I receive either a working smart meter, or the one initially supplied be placed or repaired, I finally received an email to say we can’t fix it or replace it, you will just have to manage without!!! Shocking service, I will be leaving this company as soon as my contract expires. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY AT ALL. read more

First Utility to Shell Energy, Still Awful

First Utility to Shell Energy. Still awful.

Several years ago I was a First Utility Energy customer as they were the first supplier in a new build.

Customer Service was awful.

Bounce forward a few years, add a takeover, and a bankrupt energy supplier into the mix and I see that little has improved.

Live Chat where the agent does everything bar answer the question. Then asks me again and again what the query is even though I spelt it out for him. read more

Terrible service

Every time I contact customer services, I receive misleading and inaccurate information. I am truly regretting switching to them. Should the switch ever complete, I will seek to move away as soon as possible, and will happily pay any penalties. I feel sorry for those forced onto this firm under the supplier of last resort process.

After I switched from Sky to Shell…

Shell is broken it needs major surgery!

I have been a Shell Energy customer just under a year and I’ve made more complaints in that time than my 10 years with Npower!!
The latest complaint is that Shell Energy were refusing to apply my £50 refer a friend to myself and my friend saying I’ve already received it!!
The £50 I received was for a previous complaint running for months that I requested to receive that amount as a gesture of goodwill for the hours of stress I’ve had to contend with from a customer service team who all seem to be singing from different hymn sheets as I always have to spend hours going over my complaints repeating them to different advisers and CONSTANTLY never being called back when promised!!!
Steer clear of Shell Energy, try generating your own energy on a bike dynamo. read more

Shell Crap Broadband. Where to Start…

1st Nov 2021: The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Having signed up for broadband

Having signed up for broadband I found I had no service. I was advised a new router would be sent. They didn’t. A month later I changed to another supplier and hey presto I got service. I then received a bill of over £300 for early termination Incredibly they closed my complaint and forwarded the debt to a debt collection agency. I had to escalate complaint further copying in the CEO. It wasn’t until the 28th October that someone at shell actually looked into my complaint and agreed I had not received service and withdrew the charges. I spoke to people who did not deviate from the script which was so frustrating. Holding calls for up to 25 minutes and then being cut off. As a key worker I cannot take or make calls when on duty. Then they had the temerity to tell me that I had failed to allow them to fix the problem by not answering calls. All along I simply tried to tell them. Their own tech team advised they’d send a new router. Turns out they’ve identified a fault on the mast which required contact with the telephone company which again they failed to do. I will not and would never use this company again or recommend to anyone. read more

Shell Energy, a terrible inhumane company with zero ethics

Please can you investigate fraudulent removal of nearly £2000 by Shell. I will be going to small claims and the police if this money is not returned Ref [9815163].

Shell Broadband is really really bad

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

27 Oct 2021

Sorry to say

Sorry to say, the broadband is really, really bad. Keeps dropping out have to keep re entering password, locked into a contract.

AVOID AVOID AVOID do not use this…

AVOID AVOID AVOID do not use this company to supply your broadband, we got up this morning to find that we had no broadband service. Having spent around 2 hours on the phone to Shell Broadband to try and get to the bottom of the problem. They say that we have been switched to a new supplier, when I asked who had authorised this switch they couldn’t give me an answer. It certainly wasn’t us…..Furthermore they have also informed us that we will now have to wait for 2 weeks to be reconnected. We have not received any communication from them with regards to this spurious disconnection.
We have the receipt for our account which has been maintained throughout the contact. As we are working from home we now find that we have no broadband access, when I asked for compensation for mobile data, I was told that I would have to fund the extra cost, and that they would look at this disconnection at their leisure. Even though mobile data isn’t really a workable option. We have been given the two fingered salute by this completely incompetent broadband provider.
When will Ofcom start to do the job that they are meant to be doing and dealing with these companies in a robust manner.
I asked to speak with a manager regarding this disconnection and was informed that I will receive a call back within 24 hours. Meanwhile we intend to switch supplier. But it would appear that they are all cowboys. Where are OFCOM.I will keep this post updated. read more
