Don’t use their broadband service

Don’t use their broadband service, drops out on a regular basis and the customer service is shocking. Often have to wait in excess of 50 minutes to speak to anyone!

Date of experience: 10 November 2022

Absolutely horrendous service

Absolutely horrendous service. Without Broad band for 6 weks refunded for 2 and then charged for 8. Customer service personel do not have a clue and are rude and patronising. Still no resolution 3 months on so I have left. read more

Europe gas shortages to last several winters, Shell boss warns

Ben van Beurden says energy rationing will be needed for a number of years

By Rachel Millard: 29 August 2022 • 12:54 pm

Europe’s energy crisis will last for several winters, the boss of Shell has said, as he warned it is “fantasy” to think shortages caused by Russia cutting supplies can be resolved quickly.

Ben van Beurden told a conference in Norway that power rationing will be needed for a number of years as electricity prices hit fresh record highs. read more

UK’s Ofgem says Shell to refund overcharged customers

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.

The payment by Shell Energy includes a refund of 106,000 pounds to the affected prepayment customer accounts as well as 400,000 pounds to Ofgem’s voluntary consumer redress fund which directs money to charities, trusts and consumers as a result of licence condition breaches. read more

Abysmal service

Abysmal service. Cannot get through to speak to someone who can actually assist. Biggest regret switching to Shell broadband. They do not care about the customer at all! Broadband was supposed to go live 08 August. Eventually sorted 12th August. Received a bill for more than what was quoted even though I had no service initially. Not a happy customer. Can somebody at Shell broadband please actually help?? read more

HOW SHELL ENERGY F**CKED MY CREDIT RATING

Now after trying to resolve the problem with my account for over 6 months I have just received a phone call from Shell to tell me I don’t owe them anything BUT MY CREDIT RATING IS F**CKED What a load of incompetent fools ( not my first choice of words ) AVOID THIS COMPANY !’

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

This company is going from worse to absolute sh**e. The app is terrible and doesn’t give you the info you require or it isn’t supported.

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

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

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 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 Energy putting vulnerable customers at risk

Shell: putting vulnerable customers at risk

My father is a Shell customer, as they took over his landline contract from The Post Office. He is 73 and classed as a vulnerable customer – wheelchair bound, with terminal cancer, currently undergoing immunotherapy. On June 21st, I contacted Shell to say his phone wasn’t working. They marked him as a welfare case and said the fault would be fixed within 24 hours. It was not. We contacted them again, they contacted us, and so it went on, but the upshot is that, on June 30th, a ‘priority case’ has been without a working phone for 10 days! My brother had to move in to ensure Dad was okay and still no-one will assume responsibility; Openreach say it’s fixed. Shell say they will contact Openreach again, but no one will actually go to the house and check until Monday – that’s 14 days for a welfare case!
We pay the bill; is it too much to expect a multi-million pound company to help a vulnerable customer? Disgusting. 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

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

Useless customer service

Absolutely atrocious customer service. I was switched by force due to Ofgem price cap and Pure Planet going bust. I couldn’t get a bill off this useless company for almost six months, despite having a smart meter. Then I got two within a short period of time totalling over £700 where normally I would pay less than half of that. They didn’t get meter readings for three and a half months and imposed a daily average calculated on my usage during the coldest months of the year. Absolute b*ll*nds! read more
