‘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

Oil giant Shell set to unveil record profits of more than £30bn

Oil giant Shell set to unveil record profits of more than £30bn as households and businesses grapple with sky-high energy bills

Oil giant Shell is set to unveil record profits of more than £30 billion as households and businesses grapple with sky-high energy bills.

The corporate giant is expected to say this week that annual profit more than doubled as the war in Ukraine restricted supplies from Russia, sending the price of gas and electricity rocketing.

The FTSE100 behemoth and its arch rival BP have faced mounting criticism for cashing in. BP chief executive Bernard Looney famously described his company as resembling a ‘cash machine’ because of the amount of money it has made from elevated prices.

But, since he made those comments in 2021 – three months before the invasion of Ukraine – the profits made by BP and Shell have continued to escalate rapidly. read more

Shell plans strategic review of energy supply business which employs 2,000 in UK

Shell plans strategic review of energy supply business which employs 2,000 in UK

 

Oil giant Shell has raised questions about the future of its energy supply business which employs thousands of people in the UK as companies continue to struggle in a tough market.

Shell said it will launch a “strategic review” of Shell Energy, including its operations in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany.

Launched in 2008 as First Utility and bought a decade later by the oil major, Shell Energy employs around 2,000 people in the UK.

It supplies energy to around 1.4 million homes across the country and broadband to around half a million customers.

It was not clear what options are being looked at by Shell for the unit. Companies who put their business units up for review often sell or restructure them, but sometimes keep them unchanged.

“No decisions have yet been taken on the way forward and our priority remains to ensure our customers in those countries continue to receive a reliable and affordable energy supply, and to provide support for customers who are struggling with the cost of energy and wider cost-of-living pressures,” Shell said on Thursday. read more

Shell to Review Household Energy Businesses in UK, Netherlands, Germany

Shell to Review Household Energy Businesses in UK, Netherlands, Germany

By Elena Vardon

Shell PLC on Thursday said it is starting a strategic review of its home energy retail business in the U.K., the Netherlands and Germany, but stressed that no decisions have yet been made.

The London-based energy giant said that the review is likely to take a number of months, adding that the wholesale and B2B energy supply businesses aren’t part of this review.

It didn’t say whether any jobs would be affected by the decision, but confirmed that Shell Energy Retail Ltd. currently employs around 2,000 people.

Shell said that the review is part of its ‘power progress’ strategy which includes exploring options to address performance in tough market conditions and maximize the value of its portfolio.

The company’s priority remains to ensure customers in those countries continue to receive their energy supply, and to provide support for those who are struggling with the cost of energy and wider cost-of-living pressures, it said. read more

Absolutely appalling service…

Absolutely appalling customer service from untrained, incompetent staff.
Having made multiple requests over an eight month period, for a new smart meter due to mine not working, they finally installed a new meter which also does not work. I’ve received conflicting information as to next steps and they have little interest in fixing this.
They take out their own choice of direct debit each month, in spite of me setting this to a higher amount via their website.
I have wasted many hours in trying to resolve this, all to no avail. I will now charge to any other provider. None could be as awful as Shell. DO NOT CHOOSE SHELL ENERGY read more

Man hit with £29k Shell Energy bill after supplier error

24 Jan 2023

A man has been hit with a £29,000 energy bill following a mistake by his supplier.

Patrick Collins, from Henley, Oxfordshire, said attempts to resolve the problem with Shell Energy had so far failed.

The bill was his first from the firm after his previous supplier, Green Energy, went bust in 2021.

After being contacted by the BBC, Shell Energy said it accepted Mr Collins did not owe £29,000.

It added it was working to rectify the problem. read more

Trustpilot reviewers verdict on Shell Energy – Awful Company AVOID!!!

Awful Company AVOID!!!

Awful Company! I was with Shell Energy for nearly 3 years and nothing but hassle. Terrible customer service! Seem to get no reply! Ended up getting a whopping great bill (due to not resolving the issue as no one would respond to my emails or answer my questions on the phone) I am struggling to pay this bill as its quite big so went through stepchange and even through stepchange shell play up all the time. Now asking for full balance to be paid by March. Joke of a company. You will certainly not be seeing me ever again! I am now with Eon and they are great! 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

No problems when with the Post Office but now continual problems with Shell broadband speed and its continuity. I’m supposed to receive a speed between 35 Mbs and 45 Mbs. I get as low as 11 Mbs. I complain for which one has to wait around 30 mins for someone to answer the phone. I’m told that I must give 3 possible days when an engineer needs to visit but be prepared to be charged if I’m not at home but for which there is no reciprocal arrangement if the engineer doesn’t turn up, which has happened to me. In fact the problem can be solved without an engineer’s visit and this can be undertaken remotely. Then my speed is restored to around 36 Mbs (min for me should be 35) after which it is slowly decreased until I have to complain again. It seems like I’m being robbed of the service I pay for. As it can be quickly reset I believe that it is my ISP who is throttling my speed. Broken contract – new provider here I come. read more

I have been a loyal Post Office customer for over 15 years. Then Shell Energy took over and what a shambles ensured. I would not recommend this company if it was the only one on the planet. Customer service is non-existent, when you finally get through to someone you get an absolute idiot who has no idea what they are talking about. I was told that I could download a label to send back equipment and you cannot, you need to send an email to request a label. Surely they could have told you that over the telephone, absolute crap customer service. Glad to leave, if you wish to have decent customer service then go somewhere else and do not bother with this rubbish. If you decide to go with this company then do so at your peril !!!!!! read more

Con Artists – Avoid!

Avoid Shell Energy! They are an appallingly bad company. They took over as our energy supplier over a year ago and still haven’t refunded the money they owe us (i expect this is the case for many of their other customers). They couldn’t care less about their customers, rude and unhelpful customer services staff (when you eventually do get through) We’ve wasted hours and hours of our time chasing the money they owe us only to be fobbed off every time, absolutely terrible, avoid at all costs, there are plenty of other energy suppliers available, see all the other bad reviews online of Shell and you will see that this is not an isolated instance! Disgusting behaviour from a company that made £10 billion in profits in the last quarter alone but refuses to refund £300 that they owe. It’s incredible that companies like this are allowed to get away with it. read more
