Shell Broadband is really really bad

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

Horrendous customer service from Shell Energy

These reviews must be fake

These reviews must be fake, I was told last week that it would be 48 hours to get a phonecall regarding getting a smart meter install, I’ve not heard anything. I’m unable to complete a booking online and I have not had a phonecall like promised.

May change my review rating once I get a good service, not off to a good start.

Update: now changed to a 1 star review! Horrendous customer service! Still no call so I phoned and the agent creates a ticket for me, I got an email reply from the smart meter team asking me a load of questions wanting to know what time I set my alarm in the morning, what have I got for my lunch, how many times do I brush my teeth, etc. read more

Don’t Use Shell Energy Broadband

Left without internet for days

My service was activated before my router was sent out, leaving me without internet for days. They seem to think this is acceptable as they sent my router out on the day of activation with only 48-hour delivery, and it still hasn’t arrived. This is costing me so much in lost work but all they’ve offered me is £20 compensation for potentially 4 or 5 days without internet, and initially claimed that everything was ok. I’m having to spend loads topping up my mobile data. I’d advise people to avoid, or make sure their router arrives well in advance of the activation date. read more

Thieves

Joined Shell Energy and as you can see from my previous review in Dec 2020, I’ve had nothing but issues from the start.
Complaints teams allude to concerns raised but then do nothing about them, forcible increases in monthly payments on a fixed tariff despite usage not increasing, exaggerated estimated readings when their smart meters stops being smart and then added costs per fuel to pay manually in-order to prevent them robbing you blind. Essentially it’s a case of let us rob you, or we’ll rob you.
If you’re currently a shell customer, keep an eye on your meters and check those readings against your bills! The poor staff in their collections dept have more common sense then those in Customer Service read more

Cowboys. After 2 years of issues with Shell Energy, Abdullah (head of Executive Complaints) decided there would be no support offered to fix the tariff issued they’ve caused, despite acknowledging the fact that there caused them.

Just had my distraught daughter on the phone to say she’s been cut off with her broadband when she’s received no bill, the attitude of this company on the phone is a disgrace, complaint was put straight in and they closed it straight away, going to have to seek redress elsewhere and look for a more reputable company!

Absolutely terrible experiences with this company! Unstable internet connection, very poor support and after 3 days of waiting for their engineer (the whole afternoon off work cause of this scheduled appointment) and he didn´t arrive. Avoid!

Shell Broadband

Unprofessionally dreadful behaviour by the management of this company’s telecom division caused me to cancel a contract with it going back several years. read more

Shell broadband are the worst ever

Shell broadband are quite simply a complete con. My live date was 24/8/21 and all I got was sorry this and sorry that for the reasons they couldn’t connect it all up. It’s now 6/10/21 and I’ve just had to cancel it all together as it’s still not fitted up or connected. I advise anyone to not use this company as they are literally thieves. They are the worst service I’ve ever ever seen . There live chat and phone operators are incompetent to athe highest level. They push you to every department passing the buck all the time. It’s a shocking service and I have contacted bbc watchdog to make them aware of it too. Avoid this at all costs read more

Absolute hell to get in touch with

Absolute hell to get in touch with. Virtual Assistant is a waste of time and energy. I am already sorry I transfered to them. When I finally got through the lady was very pleasant and helpful.

Not trueful

I have just changed to Shell through one of their agents who came to my house to discuss terms and conditions. The agent was very polite and pleasant and felt he was treating me fairly. He offered me £50 credit on my bill as a referral from my son, who has also just joined Shell, and £50 to my son. He also said my first payment would be one month after joining Shell. Both offers are untrue. When calling Shell they informed me no such offer should be made. I have made a complaint of mis-selling and awaiting the result. I thought this practice had disappeared, but it appears I’m wrong. read more

They think they can do what they want as other companies are nkw going bust.

Please stay away from Shell Energy they are terrible!!!

WORST COMPANY EVER!!!

WORST COMPANY EVER!!!
The customer service advisors are completely void of all human emotion. They have messed me about on multiple occasions going back to February. I’m not even a customer of this energy provider, I’m dealing with the fallout of the previous tenants of a house I moved into. This company has caused me to become so stressed with their unhelpful nature, I couldn’t help but burst into tears cause of the stress and the person on the other end of the phone hung up on me. I cannot wait to be rid of these hideous people! I know that there are issues with energy at the moment but do yourself a huge favour and do not join up to this dreadful company! Wish I could give 0 stars, they dont even deserve 1! read more

Terminating Shell Broadband is pretty much impossible

WATCH OUT!!!!!

WATCH OUT!!!!!
I have amassed £454 in my account. I phoned Shell to try and get it returned to my account but they won’t. I waited 10 day and received nothing. They said wait another 10. Something going on. Be very careful. I have had to cancel my standing order for 3 month to get the money back !!!!!

Terminating is pretty much impossible

25/9 I phoned and ask to terminate my broadband.
I was told that was fine and that could I just find out what Vodafone would be doing, nothing more specific. I was not told that my cancellation was not being actioned. They also had the wrong account activation date – I have an email confirmation of 4/5/20. They had a later date so we had to confirm that I was not in fact leaving early. This was agreed. 30/9 I phoned back to confirm what Vodafone was doing and I was told nothing had been actioned on Shells part and that they needed to know specifically if Vodafone was installing a new telephone number – this was a different question and a much less friendly operative. 4/5 today I am yet again trying to get through to Shell unsuccessfully to advise that Vodafone are not installing a new line. I have so far been cut off after 10 minutes holding. I am now yet again waiting even longer after 15 minutes I am now going to call back and try pressing another option, still no reply. I’ll try again later but this is totally unacceptable. read more

ISP Shell Energy Broadband Drop Promise of No UK Price Hikes

ISP Shell Energy Broadband Drop Promise of No UK Price Hikes

ISPreview: Monday, October 4th, 2021 Energy provider and UK ISP Shell Energy has updated the prices of their broadband packages (ADSLFTTC and G.fast) and also dropped their previous promise for “no end-of-contract price rises.” In addition, Shell has adopted BT’s approach to annual price hikes, which will see prices rise each year by CPI (inflation) + up to 3%. Previously, Shell’s website said that prices for new customers would only increase each year, from 1st April 2022 onwards, by just the rate of inflation, but they’ve now added the additional mention of “up to 3%” on top of that increase.

When will this nightmare end?????

I feel very ripped off since shell took…

I feel very ripped off since shell took over first utility,  Would not recommend to anyone, Fixed tariffs! very high standard charges, Happy now my contract has come to an end, And forget there broadband.

Broadband not adequate

Needed faster broadband than sky. Shell informed me I wouldn’t need any boosters and would suit my needs after telling them exactly how many devices, TVs, phones we are using, plus I work at home in the day. The speed was actually less than my old provider. The buffering is awful amd speed too slow. I rang the same day it went live to cancel under the cooling off period. Apparently I am out of my cooling off period as the 14 days started from when I ordered from them. It took them 16 days to install it. How do I know if it’s right for me? I complained and was on the phone for 3 hours, was cut off twice and at the end of the 3 hours, had not resolved anything. The terms and conditions and cooling off period was provided on a link on an email which is not a durable medium.
I feel it was mid sold to me. I’m now having to fight my case plus wait for a better broadband provider until 12 Oct. so inconvenient and so misleading. I will not use them again for anything or recommend.
They need to use their discretion more read more
