WiFi keeps dropping Internet connection…

WiFi keeps dropping Internet connection but broadband still connected. Not easy to speak to a person, 45 mins+ phone wait, get through to someone who does not have much idea what to do and then get cut off and they don’t ring you back. How can this possibly be called customer service? Argue that they are using a contract duration to avoid sorting out the problem and they have no answer. Dreadful. read more

Aug 25 (Reuters) – Shell Plc’s (SHEL.L) UK retail energy business has to pay 536,970 pounds ($635,181) for overcharging some customers on its default tariffs which are subject to a price cap, Britain’s energy market regulator Ofgem said on Thursday.

Shell Energy to hand refund to tens of thousands of Britons for overcharging on tariffs

Express: Shell Energy to hand refund to tens of thousands of Britons for overcharging on tariffs

SHELL’S consumer energy business caused “additional and unnecessary stress” by overcharging more than 11,000 customers in Britain for their pre-paid tariffs, regulator Ofgem has said.

By ALEKS PHILLIPS

Shell Energy Retail will offer refunds to those affected for the overpayment, along with goodwill cash and a redress fund for consumers held by the energy watchdog. Some customers were accidentally overcharged on their tariffs for periods of time from January 2019.

Ofgem said customers would receive an average refund of around £9.40. It comes as rising wholesale gas prices – which Shell Energy’s parent company has made healthy profits from – are expected to push household energy bills as high as £4,200 a year this winter. read more

I am a shell broadband customer. It is a cheaper provider and you get what you pay for. The customer service is appalling and everyone I have spoken to has been disinterested and unsupportive.

Very low internet speeds and terrible customer service provided by Shell Energy Broadband

My basic problem with Shell is that every time I call, I’m on the line for 40 – 50 minutes, most of it ‘on hold’: “Actually speaking to a human is near impossible unless you have a spare 2hrs to spend trying to get through.”

Terrible customer service for Broadband Customers !!

I haven’t had my first bill yet and I spent so much time holding the line with their customer service. Never manage to have a resolution but only be passed between customer service, retention service and technical support.. not a single person has taken ownership of the issue or got anywhere close to giving me a solution. I’m dreading the thought I’m now stuck with them for over a year. What a massive mistake !!
PS Not once I’ve been given the name of the person I was talking to; this makes me very worried about the authenticity of the previous reviews praising individuals for their “great” service !! read more
