    The service is shocking, from day 1 we had issues, constantly dropping and it works amazing if you only sit in the room the router is plugged in. I spend hours and hours on the phone with them, we got send 4 different models of routers as they clearly could not work out which one, we should be using. Open reach came to check twice and there was no issue on their line into the property and it still does not work. The customers services lines constantly cut you off and they do not call you back at all and you must go through the same process over and over. DO NOT USE THEM, it is not worth it, it might be a cheaper price but for the headache and drama just pay more, I have learnt my lesson. Finally won today and after weeks of just calling every day and complaining they have cancelled my contract and got a full refund back. If you have issues, just keep calling them and keep opening those complaints and don’t let them close them. There is a ‘The Communications Ombudsman’ if you can’t resolve with Shell go to them and raise a complaint with them.

    No stars.. as this is the worst broadband ever used and customer service is even worser as none of them are interested to solve your problem instead they transfer the call from one department to other and then just hang up.

    Please I request no one should choose shell as you can see the below reviews.. it is really the worst service you will ever get.

    Poor in service. Painful experience with shell broadband while moving from one location to other. Almost 2 months they took in the process and couldn't even provide me fiber connection at the end. They cancelled the service and took other fiber in less than 2 weeks. Over all shell poor in both customer service and Internet service.

    Absolutely abysmal. It constantly cuts out, at least once every 2 hours, and the signal is ridiculously weak. Only two people use the wifi in our flat and if my partner is watching netflix I can't even watch a tiktok. If he's downloading a game, I can't even see a text webpage. And the download speeds are so slow it takes him 3 days to download DLC for Mortal Kombat. It should only take an hour, at a push, on regular speeds. Sometimes the wifi dies completely and we can't connect to the router, sometimes we can connect without internet. Somehow it's even worse than Plusnet.. don't even know how you manage that not gonna lie. Unfortunately we don't get to choose our internet provider as our bills company, Unihomes, does. I regret getting the broadband package. Next time I'm forfeiting that and paying the absurd prices for broadband separately and go back to Plusnet.

    By far the Worst broadband you will ever experience.
    We where recommended to sign up for shell by Currys who are clearly getting a commission from this diabolical service.
    Our broadband constantly goes in and out as your typing even though we where under the impression we had signed up for the top speed.
    When we complained they told us that we needed an upgrade
    Which involved the contract starting from the beginning again .
    We now have a more expensive broadband than we had before that has only 5% of its reliability.
    The upgrade made absolutely no difference .
    This company are legalised scammers and should be shut down.
    Avoid at all costs.

    I would request any one who want to buy broadband service to not to go for Shell Energy Broadband.They have very Pathetic service and they don't even bother to revert back to customer. I waited for 22 days and followed up with them for 6 days continuously but they were pathetic in their response and finally I had to cancel by contract.

    I wish I had read the reviews before signing up. Broadband is OK so far but we are unable to accepy incoming calls on the landline. The 8th agent spoken to promissed to arrange for incoming calls to be transfered to a mobile but this has not happened. Now told in will take 24 hours. I have tried to explain over and over again that are dealing with 80 year olds with medical issue and that a landlibe is essential. All I get is well that's the system. Asked to speak to a manager but again I will have to wait for 24 hours. Service simply not good enough.
