    My Shell broadband was supposed to go live on 07/11/23 but never did (everything was fine with the previous provider). After several complaints, Shell sent the engineer on 22/11/23. He confirmed that my brand new router sent by Shell was installed correctly and upgraded the master socket.
    However, this did not help. The engineer found that the phone line did not function and the problem was on the Shell side. He requested escalation to the Senior Investigator Team with a follow-up by visiting the property.
    The engineer submitted the report in my presence on 22/11/23 9am. However, after 3 full days, no-one has contacted me to book an appointment with the senior investigator team and I have been without internet for 17 days now.
    DO NOT USE SHELL.
    They have atrocious customer service, never call back, do not have adequate engineer staff and are not able (and interested) to fix their mess. I've also been already charged for their non-existent services.

    Two years ago I joined Vodafone broadband. The service was so bad I had two heart attacks and I'm still trying to get the £200 compensation they promised. This lot are even worse and I cannot get any sense out of them. Having agreed a deal where I was supposed to get £220 bonus voucher. No mention on the contract although it was promised by IMRAN WHO from Somewhere.

    By far the worst broadband provider I have ever had the displeasure of being signed up with. Avoid these crooks at all costs.

    Cannot possibly give any stars absolutely appalling, an engineer was supposed to come today to set up broadband we had an e,mail to confirm rang Shell
    and was passed from pillar to post only to be told we have to install it ourselves so we tried to cancel but was told the contract started when we signed with them and would have to pay a high cancellation fee even though its not even live was on the phone for well over an hour so we are stuck into a 12 month contract and will have to pay someone to install it
    Shocking really shocking behaviour

    Had an issue with phone service. Got a message saying, call was answered but, immediately. This happened with all landline calls, but ok connecting with mobiles.

    There customer service was abysmal. Passed to 2 others and each time had to exain issue. In this day and age why can't a ticket be raised on a computer, and trouble ticket no., against which all the details logged. After holding for 20 mins, call was dropped by them. Terrible, useless customer service. Will take up with another broadband/phone service.

    Absolutely awful service. Broadband is worse than Dial up and my phone just stopped working.I tried to complain on the chatline but it got ridiculous and ended with me having to tell them I wasn't dead, on universal credit or had a house fire ! I can't wait for this appalling contract to end

    Absolutely NO!
    Bad customer service... IMPORTANT: they will give your personal information to debt collectors(with a value of £30 router) and keep harassing you when they lack OR have no communication on how to return back their router. I did tell them it's illegal to pass my personal information to a third-party debt collector without my consent... but they simply do not bother

    After switching to Shell energy, we have consistently had issues with loss of broadband connection and had low speeds - after 2 days of joining and reporting numerous faults; I've been quoted £270 to cancel.
    The telephone service is also incredibly unprofessional and should be reviewed immediately.

    I cancel my contract with shell broadband after a week.
    I have been treated unfairly,
    I had and engineer come to install the box on Wednesday 8th November 2023, I stated to the engineer that I did not want the box installed in my kitchen or bedroom, however he insisted on installing it in my bedroom, I felt at this point he was just after a quick easy job by doing this, I know it can be installed in my living room, as the previous company whom I had a contract with did it with no issue.
    Having the box in my bedroom is causing me to loose sleep as I have a severe light sensitivity and to be able to sleep I have to have a pitch black room. I wasn't advised about the amount of lights coming fliking and the sound coming from the box. when I complained, for them to turn around to me and tell me to cover the lights which I found it very insensitive and unprofessional. I have been dealing with this for a week and I am now being passed back and fourth to different people in different departments and being told different things, is purely unprofessional from a customer perspective.
    Furthermore,
    We can only connect to the WiFi upstairs where the box is located, I cannot get signal downstairs which is redundant, as my children cannot use their computer for school work.

    Therefore I cancel my contract with them and I have had all these issues in a space of my week, therefore

    This company are legalised scammers and should be shut down.
    Avoid at all costs.
