    Broadband is so weak, I can’t even watch Catchup without constant buffering. I’ve never had a problem with any other provider before.
    Can’t wait for this contract to end so that I can leave Shell.

    Broadband was all right but returning the router was a nightmare as they kept asking for it to be returned, or for me to call them about the return, when they had already had it back for over a week. Admin is dreadful generally, wasted a lot of time contacting them because of their appalling processes.

    Had this for 4 days absolute rubbish, did live chat to cancel...she was very nice....informed I’d have to pay £306 to cancel. Even though it’s not fit for purpose. Told them I’ll cancel the direct debit and pay £10 a month. Angry doesn’t cover it!!!

    Have been migrated from Post Office last week, all seemed okay until a day later. Can no longer log on to the server, cannot send emails, lost the phone line for 3 hrs, and after 3 customer service people and 2 hours later have been told they have a problem. What a surprise, UNDERSTATEMENT of the century, what a complete bunch of clowns.

    My mother has her phone and Broadband Account with this lot and has recently had her service suspended due to non-payment of her a bill - a bill they have admitted they have never sent.

    Apparently the bill has now been sent with a discount for their error but they will not re-instate her services unless they can speak to her, so I told them to ring her as she can't currently call anyone but apparently they can't do that, they suggested I call back when I next visit her so she can pass security (I'm assuming they realise that won't be from her phone line which they have suspended)- dammit I can pass security I know all the details and isn't it a good job I live in the same country if that's what needs to be done- idiots, they created a mess and don't have the capacity to resolve it.
    Hopefully the contract will expire soon and she can move to another provider.

    Terrible customer service - poor response times, poor advice given, promises not kept. Complained and still a rubbish experience. There are plenty of other similarly priced broadband deals available - pick another provider, not Shell.

    Absolutely ridiculous excuse of a company! They tried to charge me £84 for a missed engineer appointment which I was in for. I spoke to so many people through live chat and by calling customer service and they kept saying it was sorted but nothing got sorted. This issue started at the end of January and has just about been sorted today. They said all they could offer was an apology because of how disorganised this company is. Avoid!!

    Truly the worstcustomer service of any provider I have had. Difficult to get in touch with and they charge you to do so. Without a reliable working telephone line for over seven weeks due to their reluctance to pay for work needed at the exchange. Closed down complaints with responding to them. Refused to issue deadlock letters. Will be seeking contract cancellation through the regulator or the courts if necessary. Understand this company charges £15 to leave whether in contract or out of contract (T&C'S). Broadband speed is good considering we are within a mile of the exchange, but given one star because the router is rubbish and wifi is poor throughout(bought a Ubiquiti Unifi access point wifi to boost signal).

    The work service I have ever had in my life. I was sent a broadband that didn’t work. I phoned Shell and informed them . I then sent the broadband back and for the last 7 months they’ve been harassing me saying I owe them £350 for a service I never used and a service I sent back. It is now starting to affect my mental. I can’t handle the threats anymore, I have called them to try and resolve the matter but nothing seems to be getting down about it. I would not recommend this company at all. My life has been a living hell

    Very very disappointed that companies like this exist these days. The customer service is shocking and they use outright fraud to retain customers who find them out.
    Look for reviews and talk to a customer service rep before committing...trust me...this is the first time I ever feel angry with a company as I feel defrauded.
    First Utility were due to install broadband on 5th December. By which point I'd had a little contact with them to try to arrange an alternative installation date, and realised that they were incredibly aggressive, arrogant and inflexible. The individuals I dealt with weren't the root cause, I felt they wanted to help but referred to 'our policies don't allow us to do this' or 'I'd get hung for this', etc...
    Anyhow, the day the line was due to be installed the engineer couldn't install it and said first utility should have known this as this engineer mentioned there were challenges installing this line in our postcode.
    So I ended up being charged for internet without internet!!!
    So I phoned them expecting some apology or action, and what I got was too late, that's always a risk and we will install it when we get a chance, when pushed, they said a couple of months at best. In the meantime, I'm expected to pay for using my non existent broadband.
    I then said this is shocking, I would like to leave first utility to which they said you will have to pay £136.60 early closure charge. I calmly explained the 14 day returns policy to which the response was, oh that won't work because first utility start the 14 day counter 15 days before you get your broadband!!! I said you're having a laugh to which he explained, it's probably not fair but my hands are tied. Is this not fraud? I hope this review helps you. I am fighting this out of principle and have joined virgin media who got everything working within 2 days and start the 14 day returns counter AFTER you get the service.

    Got a new router and asked to send old one back in package that came with the new router. No package. Emailed customer service and got no reply. Now they have charged me for non return. Disgusting company can't wait for my contract to end.

    Like others, I was involuntarily transferred from the Post Office system. Broadband is unreliable. I cant pay my bill as neither their on-line or telephone payment services work. Contacting them gets a "sorry, why don't you pay us via bank transfer" !

    Absolutely terrible - random drop-outs, horrible speed, and I live alone, so maximum 1-2 devices using Wifi at any time. Their response: "Wifi isn't guaranteed, we'll send you a network cable" - how does that help for smartphones and tablets? Can't wait to leave. Worst internet I've had in years. AVOID

    I normally don't leave reviews, but this company deserves every single bad comment they receive. The customer service is the most unqualified, unprofessional and rude I ever seen. Got hang up 3 times, just apologies but not actual help with us trying to cancel the contract as they are breaking it because we don't get any stable/reliable service. We spoke with Bethany, a manager, completely useless just re-reading the manual without listening to us. We work as well on Customer service so we are no fools on your illicit tricks.
    Avoiding a person to cancel a broken contract because we should not be charged on the fee termination, is completely unacceptable.
    We have been 1 month and a half with internet connection dropping off every hour. Connecting, disconnecting. The speed is laughable, at best gets to 10MBps, now is at 3,8MBps.
    They sent 2 engineers, they did fix things for some hours. Then crashed again. They pretend to send another one and if the engineer doesn't finds anything we will be extra charged.

    The Customer service is non-existance, the service is non-existance, the managers are a full joke. Probably the worst company ever. They don't care for customers, they don't care for internet provided, they only care for money income.
    Now make sense why they are the only ones that doesn't accepts the voluntary Code of Practice.

    The main issue that I had with Shell Broadband was after ending the contract. The router was returned but constantly got email reminders to return the router! Customer service was poor, therefore to ensure that I was not charged £35 for returning the router, I cancelled the direct debit. I was in credit by £6+ but decided rather lose that amount compared to £35!

    Really awful broadband. Pay £28.99 for
    download speed of 6.8mps and upload 0.6mbs something there own in house systems acknowledge as true. Had more drop-outs than is 'normal' their customer care inform me. They have offered me free termination of contract which has months still to run. NO REFUND THOUGH. I have lost count of the hours spent on the phone awaiting response on the telephone. Good service... don't bother.

    Hasn't worked properly from the get go and it's hard to contact customer service as they give you the usual "go online and let the chatbots or help options see to your needs" rubbish. How can I go online when my internet isn't working? Basic logic fault.
    Whether it's the router or exchange problems god alone knows as the Qube guy couldn't fix it.
    I've had no reliable connection since I switched provider to Shell. Nearly 2 weeks now
    I'm disabled and need a decent service to stay connected.
    I wish I'd stayed with my previous provider now. At least when I had power cuts the router would reconnect automatically.
    I'm frustrated and disgusted.

    Absolutely the worst company I have ever had any dealings with. They changed my package mid contract without me asking and put up the price. They didn't provide the service they promised and when I complained completely fobbed me off. They don't respond to their emails.

    Absolute dishonesty from start to finish. They get you aboard for £19pcm but forget to mention anywhere that it's £19 plus VAT. You get a max of 9 Mbps for 4 days followed by .08 Mbps. When you contact them they suggest you switch to £35 per month plus VAT for a faster speed. They will ignore all complaints except when you cancel the DD - then they write, boy how they write. When they know they've lost - as in when you are with a reliable supplier - you will hear nothing for 2 months. Then you will receive a threatening e mail from their 'collection agents' etc. I have opened a case against them with the CAB who believe enough other like complaints will see the Trading Standards take over, even the police maybe. Get your money back off these sharks, ask for some deserved compensation off them for their behaviour towards you; then register the complaint with the CAB.

    An absolute shambles of a service. Whilst my speed is pretty good when it’s actually working, the reliability is poor at best. My service drops out at least 5 times a day (on a good day). I may have got a great deal but this has been entirely negated by the shocking service. Can’t wait till I’m able to cancel!

    Okay until the end of the contract, if you decide to leave, Shell ask for the router back. Posted it. Nearly a month later they say they have not received and will charge £35. Tracking says delivered. Third party receives returned routers, clearly not recording which customer they have been returned from. Nearly half an hour so far trying to fix this. Ongoing. Best avoided.

    On the 24th October 2018 i cancelled my broadband account due to unforeseen circumstances. The account was only opened within 14 days of cancellation so i should have had a cancellation free of charge but i didn't.
    I understand that there is a 30 day cancellation period, so my account was cancelled on the 24th November and i was told i could pay my final bill from then. I phoned yourselves as i had not received an email with my final bill and was told that i would get it on 5th December instead for £266. Today, 5th December, i still have not received a final bill so i called you again and was told the bill had not yet been produced. How long does it take to produce a bill!?

    Meanwhile, i was receiving emails from yourself stating i owe £72 to recover my account, if not debt collectors will be at my door. I do not want to recover my account as i personally closed it. When i called and asked about this, no-one really knew what i was meant to do, whether i needed to pay it or wait for my final bill...

    I have now been told i will receive my final bill around the 19th December which will include the £266 cancellation fee, plus £20 usage fee and possibly plus the £72, which has randomly been added!

    Every time i have called to speak to someone, i have waited over half an hour and never got an answer by the first person i have spoken to, My average phone call with you is usually around an hour long... absolutely ridiculous!!

    So now, 6 weeks after i cancelled my account with you, I am still waiting my final bill! All i want to do is pay you and yet i am receiving hate mail stating that you are sending round debt collectors when i do not even know what i am meant to be paying yet!!

    I am 19 years old and on minimum wage, I hope you feel very proud of yourselves for making this such an horrific experience for me! I will be taking this further, as i am absolutely fuming!

    Disgraceful company!

    Signed up for their superfast package, dreadfully slow speed. Dreadful customer service, still trying to RESOLVE SLOW speed issues. THERE ARE BETTER ISP's OUT THERE. and the downside is they don't care. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID and if you didn't get the hint AVOID.

    A few months ago, I decided to get shell as it was one of the only suppliers at the time giving a fair price for providing gigabit speeds; however, I wish I hadn't. The internet connection is constantly dropping, can range from 2-3 times a day. A few months ago I complained and my issues were never resolved, no one had gotten back to me. They constantly lie and say that on their end everything looks fine, it's probably something to do with my devices. As I have thoroughly studied networking, I know for a fact the issue is coming from them. Additionally, their troubleshooting helplines know nothing about networking and when they claim they provide gigabit speeds, what they really mean is 300-600Mbps. I would advise against signing up to Shell broadband at all costs!

    This is the worst broadband provider I have ever used. My download speed is approx 1.2 mbps. The internet barely reaches anywhere in the house and it’s bad even if you sit next to the router. My dad switched to this broadband because it was £5 cheaper than utility warehouse which was incredibly fast. I’d of happily paid that £5 for him after what we go through everyday with this god awful internet. At least this internet is consistent in one thing even if it is for being garbage! Not to mention we’re stuck with this for over a year because of the long contract which traps it’s customers.

    I had to cancel the broadband service due to my late mother passing away.
    Upon cancelling it was fine. There was no mention of additional fees etc.
    After 1 month I received a final bill for early cancellation fee charges. This was due to stoppinf the contract before 12 months.
    I called Shell and waited for 45 minutes. Upon answering I explained the reason for cancelling.
    They didn't care so clearly it's all about the money.
    I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. Awful.

    12 months of problems around 10 visits of engineers, multiple visits booked and no one showed up,
    and at the end they try to scam me with router fee, where i have proof of sending the router back.

    This is not only the worst internet service provider I have ever been with - it is the worst company I have ever dealt with. Please avoid. The internet cuts out up to 12 times a day. They make you pay for a number of engineer visits that don't fix the problem before you can even think about cancelling. You might as well chuck your money down the toilet. I was advised by customer service that I had a specific agent that would deal with my query and fix the issue... he promised to call the Monday before last and he did not. Never heard from him again.

    getting through to speak to someone takes a minimum of 35 minutes and they charge you for this which is £2.85 each time. They do not do anything they say they will do, so basically avoid them at all costs!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In my first property there were connection issues, they wanted me to pay for the engineer to come out I said no but the charged me anyway.
    Then I moved house and gave them the 1 month notice as they asked for, for them to cancel my order two days before I moved, and ask me to wait another 3 weeks for installation. A colleague of mine is having issues with them too and they just don't own up to their mistakes. Worst company I've had to deal with.
    0/10 do not recommend.

    absolutely appalling WIFI, I've been with shell for 2 years and it feels like a prison sentence. I'm hopefully switching to another company next week or so which I'm relived about. The WIFI is like putting pineapple on pizza and it runs slower than a granny on the way to Tesco. The broadband has a mental breakdown when using more than 2 devices. DONT CHOOSE SHELL ENERGY!

    Was with Post Office for years, could rely on their integrity and honesty.
    While the service remains the same, they have lied and scammed me over new price structure.
    Was promised a new reduced price if I stayed with them, didn't happen...still at old rate, can't talk to customer service, never have 2 hours to spare waiting for an advisor.
    Don't believe a word they say.. obviously trained scammers employed.

    The only positive thing I can say for Shell is that their call-centre staff are very polite and courteous and as such they are one ahead of the mostly arrogant/unpleasant people I dealt with at XLN.

    However, the speed with which they resolve issues is abysmal. At first I was impressed with them - the phone was answered quickly and the staff were pleasant to deal with. I presume though that this was because I was a new customer. As soon as they have you on board,it is a different matter. First, I was given an upgrade (with predictable price rise) that I neither wanted nor needed. My service was, during this time, suspended for several days. While this was hugely inconvenient, it also illustrated to me that I appear to have an issue with wifi - in that it is causing me health problems. While the wifi was suspended, the issues I had experienced, stopped. I therefore made the decision that my health and well-being are far more important than being hooked up to the internet and I asked Shell if I could terminate the contract early. They, predictably, are going to charge me for the full term of the contract, despite me saying that I am not going to a rival firm. Their response times to my queries are woefully slow. I do not blame the poor people who have the misfortune to man Shell's telephone line but the terrible management who put insufficient resources in place to deal with customer queries/complaints.

    So, if you want pleasant call-centre staff, rubbish broadband reliability, and hideously slow complaint resolution, then I can't recommend Shell highly enough!

    Can’t log in to my account, currently on the phone to sort my extremely low broadband speed still trying to sort it after over 2 hours on the phone, I asked them to call me back after an hour as I was incurring call charges, I was a post office customer and wanted to cancel as the low b/band was affecting my home business to be told I would incur a £174 fee by Ian, my contract started 11 days ago I should have been in my 2 week cooling period, really disappointed with shell

    The most appalling customer service. If nothing goes wrong with your bills then they are fine. But if you need to get something corrected (their errors) it is incredibly bad. Slow to answer, calls get cut off, promises made are not kept. I have spent HOURS on the phone trying to get their errors corrected. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE
