‘Get a grip’ Shell told, as it racks up the most broadband complaints (again)

‘Get a grip’ Shell told, as it racks up the most broadband complaints (again)

Extracts from an article by Ellie McDonald published on Sunday 29 Jan 2023 (Page 15)

Shell Energy has been told to “get a grip” after a surge in broadband and landline complaints.

The telecoms regulator Ofcom also said it was monitoring the firm’s performance because its complaints volume remains far higher than its rivals.

Shell Energy, which started providing broadband in 2016, had 27 complaints per 100,000 broadband customers between July and September 2022 and 20 complaints per 100,000 landline customers. It was also the worst in the previous three months, when it received 31 and 23 complaints per 100,000 customers respectively.

Shell Energy Broadband said: “Ofcom’s table reflects our position up to six months ago. Since then we have invested heavily and made big strides in our processes.

We’re confident that these will be reflected when Ofcom releases its results for the current period.” read more

Never under any circumstances get broadband with this company. After at least 15 phone calls, multiple transfers per call, and over two months of waiting, the broadband I ordered is still not working. They’ve tried their best to resolve complaints, but the inconvenience they’ve caused will not be resolved easily. I could forgive that if my broadband at least works, but due to a technical issue, it has still not been done. They expect it wont be working for a total of 3 months after my order date. Additionally, the customer website never works, meaning I can’t check any of my payment details or other information. Never use this company’s broadband. read more

Shell Energy is the most complained about broadband firm again

Shell Energy is the most complained about broadband firm again

Written by Andrew Wooden

Shell Energy continued to attract the most broadband and landline complaints to Ofcom in Q3 2022, while BT Mobile, Virgin Mobile and iD Mobile were the most complained-about mobile operators.

As it has for the last few quarters, Shell Energy has topped Ofcom’s rankings of complaints it received in the category of broadband and landline. Complaints were mainly around faults and service issues, while landline customers were chiefly unhappy with how complaints were handled. read more

Utterly useless. Worst internet provider I have ever experienced. And I use the term provider in the loosest sense of the term, as they provide very little. Signed up to 70mbps deal which promises a minimum of 40 at any time. Here’s what I get: download on Steam or blizzard servers, on an ethernet cable connected desktop, plugged directly to the router, 1mbps download speed. Absolute peak connection speed I have seen on anything, was on the PS4 speed test, max 3.5 Mbps. You can forget gaming with shell internet. I drop out completely at least once an hour. You can barely browse the internet. Forget online auctions, you wont stay connected long enough. What they are delivering isn’t even 5% of what was promised. Utter shambles. Do not use. read more

My service with shell went live on the 1st Nov 22, a few drop outs of service occasionally, but nothing major, it did not affect streaming or kids gaming etc, so we can live with it. The 9th December was the last day of any broadband (I miss watching Netflix on a big screen) The router is just displaying the information light and nothing more, its not making any attempt to connect, so I make all the required checks, resets, switching it off etc to no avail. I get through to Shell quite easily and the tech guy seems genuinely helpful, line tests carried out etc and says open reach need to come out which will take 3 to 4 days, but nothing is confirmed until I hear from them. I explained that I felt the router was probably the issue and questioned if it would make more sense to have a new router sent out first rather than waste time and money on an engineer, he says its not possible. read more

I would give zero stars if I could. The customer service is crap. I’ve had no broadband for 6 days. Told internal fault by 3 people over more than 3 hrs I was on phone. They booked engineer who didn’t turn up. Phoned them and told external fault and would update me in 2 hrs..of course not heard from them then when asked was told they dont work weekends so God knows if they’ll ever fix it. Opened complaint heard nothing. As soon as they fix it …if ever I will change provider. These are the worst. Time wasting useless liars that are completely incompetent read more

Awful experience, unreliable slow broadband. Speed was ok at the beginning but got progressively slower. I complained and the speed improved then got even slower than before to the point of being unusable. Couldn’t wait to leave. After six weeks of not being asked to return the router I binned it then two months after termination I was asked to return the router and it would cost £35 if i didn’t. read more

Absolutely abysmal shocking customer…

Absolutely abysmal shocking customer service. They just keep moving the goal post, no response to your complaint. As a vulnerable person they have no concern whatsoever for you. I contacted Shell in June and the complaint is still unresolved. If you try to call them you just wait for hours and get knowhere, waiting to get this complaint resolved and then I can leave this appalling company. All the profits they make but they treat people like animals. read more

My broadband account with the P.O was changed over Shell energy, the contract expired end of July 2022. I could not understand their charges to renew my contract so switched to BT, maybe not the cheapest provider but great service.
I returned the router ( supplied f.o.c by the P.O. )and received confirmation that I had sent them proof of postage. over 3 months later I am still receiving threatening e-mails demanding £35.00 for the router. I have spent hours on the phone and sending e-mails to try and resolve this matter but I am not going to waste any more time trying to reason with this useless bunch of morons, and will try to resolve this matter through the ombudsman. read more

Shell Broadband not fit for purpose

Shell Energy Broadband Reviews recently posted on broadband.co.uk

Reviewer Julie L: Location Newcastle upon Tyne: Date 2022-11-10

Comments

My broadband was transferred from the Post Office to Shell and I can only describe this company as not fit for purpose. Due to the area where I live I can only have the standard package, which was fine when I was with the PO, but not now. The download speed over the last month has averaged at just under 6mbps and the upload 3.5mbps. I cannot watch catch up on the tv without constant buffering, during work meetings I have to turn off my camera, or drop out altogether. I have spent hours trying to get to speak to them on the phone, but no luck, the online chat is not working more often than not. The whole experience is very frustrating. I wouldn’t recommend Shell as a broadband provider to anyone. read more
