    Going with shell Broudband was the worst decision I have ever made. From day one it has continued to fail I am unable to watch Netflix as it constantly go’s off and takes hours to re enter using the ridiculously long password. When customer services have been contacted they have not helped after waiting and waiting to talk to someone they don’t have any answers to the problem you then get passed on to the next person who clearly has no idea how to solve the problem.
    I asked to speak with a manager this was refused.
    I demanded that I be released from my contact as I am not receiving the Broudband I am paying for, I was told I would be charged, ridiculous shell Broudband is not fit for purpose you will possibly like me spend hours on the phone to them achieving nothing that’s when your not spending hours trying to get it to work on your TV. Avoid Shell altogether it’s not good and customer service is nonexistent.

    Do not touch this company with a barge pole!!! I signed up with Shell Broadband on the Superfast package. The connection kept dropping and after complaining on numerous occasions they finally sent an engineer out for which they charged £65. In the end I got Ombudsman involved who then got Shell to send me a letter of apology. At one point they agreed to waive the engineer's call out fee of £65 but then they retracted their offer and debited my account with £65. Stay away from Shell broadband--rubbish broadband and even worse customer service!!!!

    I was initially with post office, and by chance my energy company changed gym Green to shell energy. Thus i though I was being charged for energy. However when i called they told me that the energy has not started to charge me yet.

    When i study further my bank details, and bill i findout my Internet has changed from post office to shell brand band, without me knowing anything,

    My cost was £23.5 now gone up to £37/month this has been going on for 4month. I'm so annoyed and disappointed with both company that how come i have not beem informed. I will take this further.??

    Despite having problems since our contract started (8mths ago), Shell Energy has not fixed our problem. There is nothing wrong with the BT line, that is always reliable, the problem is with the 'not fit for purpose' wifi router that Shell Energy provide for their customers. No wonder it's cheaper - it doesn't work. We are not totally without broadband for all our devices except for this laptop where I have plugged a wire into the router. We call Shell Energy today and used their call back service. They haven't called back. We are beside ourselves and have no choice but to source a provider and pay two providers - one Shell for a non-service, and our new provider who we know will be more reliable and we moved from them to save £3 per month by moving to Shell. Worst broadband mistake we have ever made

    Customer sales team committed to delivery dates that were in complete contrast to dates indicated in later email. Suppoesed to get connected 16/12/2021. Very unlikely to get connected before end of December. Batted back and forth between sales and service team. I used the cooling off period to go with BT.

    Woeful. Has caused me no ends of problems with work. Most of the time I have to use my phone as a hot spot. Ended up having an interview on my iPad because the internet fell off.

    Terrible customer service. Tried to complain then cancel as it wasn’t working. They stated they would have to charge us.

    My current account closes 5 days from post of this review. Broadband has completely stopped. Now on hold to customer services for 24 minutes.

    AVOID

    My broadband has failed 3 days in a row. Tried several times to call Shell - one time yesterday held in for an hour then they hung up. Don’t answer emails - zero customer service - should never have gone with them after buying from Post Office. Avoid

    Terrible service. Internet constantly dropping out. 0.5mbps speed during day with regular drops. Constant calls to be told there was no issue. After much hoop jumping Internet seemed average for a while. Now have been without Internet for 5 days. One hour each night on hold to company, during that time after 30 minutes on hold half the time the line is hung up without speaking to anyone. When I finally get through some agents are ridiculously rude and unhelpful and make me feel like it is somehow my fault and I am being unreasonable for expecting a service I'm paying for. I did speak to one lovely lady who said a ticket was raised but now 5 days have passed with no further communication, Internet is still down. Writing this review after being on hold yet again for half an our only to have the line cut off so starting the process again just to try and get a basic Internet service. Would cancel but am told that I have to pay cancellation fees despite the many months of problems and complaints.

    When joining Shell Energy Broadband. Customer Service staff offered me Broadband for £26 per month which is on their own website for only £15 per month. 

    Two. Shell energy broadband, Send me my router. it was one day late and the currier did not knock on my door, just left a card and I had to go and collect it myself. 

    Three. When I tried to speak to shell energy broadband about this, it was impossible to get through to them because the advisor took down my email address incorrectly and left it impossible to access their site/My Account. Getting a phone number that works…impossible!

    Four. My ‘go live’ live date has come and gone with no access to the Internet as the provided Wi-Fi passwords are incorrect…unbelievable!

    I took out a new contract with these guys after leaving sky. I have to say shell has the worst customer service iv ever come across I wouldn't recommend anyone to join these guys. I have called them today because I haven't received my router which I was ment to get last week I'm on the phone to them right now and iv been put on hold for over 15mins because they want to find out where the router is before all this I called them 3 times and kept getting disconnected. My honest opinion about this service is absolutely diabolical please don't waste your time with them find I reliable supplier.

    Connection drops or only gives me 6mb now for the last 6 weeks, it was working fine before that, tried to call customer service and after 45 minutes I got through but I explained what the problem was and the guy put the phone down on me, I’m now trying to call back but they will be closed by the time I get through. Not fit for purpose, use someone else.

    Left Shell Energy because of very poor speed. I was asked to return their router. The post office did not accept their return label. Despite requests via e-mails and phone calls they failed to send the promised return label. They hsve now charged me £35 pounds for failing to return their router!

    Absolute waste of time.
    After being on the phone for approx 5 hours booked an engineer to come, he never turned up and then sent an email saying no fault detected... so another hour on the phone booked another engineer so waiting to see if he turns up. I've had no internet for 6days and no tv.
    Service absolutely appalling. Definately avoid signing up. I was with the post office until they sold it off to this shambles of a company

    Trusted the Post Office, who no longer do broadband services, to transfer me to a decent-quality provider. But as soon as the service moved to Shell the quality instantly plummeted, slow and often barely existent especially at weekends. I really wish I hadn't agreed to transfer to Shell but having read the avalanche of appalling reviews I don't think I can face customer services!

    Total rubbish. Moved from Sky 12Mbps to Shell 50Mbps. The slower was far far better. No point in having a broadband connection a mega speed that takes 2,3 or 4 minutes to connect to something as simple as the BBC and even then starts buffering in the middle of a program. Only committed for a year so will go back to Sky ASAP

    Disgrace of a service. We get decent WiFi coverage only up to 3 metres from Router. Rest is hopeless. Weak signal. Drops out. Unusable unless you want to sit in your hall all day. There seems to be little enthusiasm to help and relying on the penalty clause to stop you moving to a provider who can do the job. This has been the case in two small flats. Never seen such problems in 20 years of buying broadband, Shell should stick to oil. They clearly can’t do this business. Will never use again. Will never recommend.

    I would not be leaving such a bad review had Shell not messed up and not sent over a compatible router for my new package.

    When upgrading to the new package was told my current router is compatible. Waited patiently until 30th November for it to switch. 30th November came and broadband just cut out. Had engineers from Open Reach in on the same day, they tried everything but could not get broadband to work. We called Shell and they said they need to send a new router out and can take up to two working days. I work from home and now have to use my limited mobile data to connect to my work system. Asked Shell if they can do anything and they just said have to wait for the new router to arrive. Not helpful at all and will be raising a formal complaint with them when I finally have a broadband connection.

    Again, if this had not happened, I would be happy to leave a better review but this has really been a joke so they only get 1 star.

    Postoffice/Shell Broadband state my line is completely fine. I have purchased a new ADSL, I have placed the cable into the test socket and I have moved my wiring, (even though I have had the phone and router in the same place for years). But my E mail states it's me (household) that has the issue. My speed is so slow that I can only write E mails. Their tech team never picks up, even when they call me and transfer me to the team. In my opinion customer service want to be seen as being active but nothing gets done.
    The automated message when you call customer service keeps cutting out so you don't hear sentences.
    I have requested to cancel my contract without a penalty as they are not fulfilling their side of the bargain.

    Has ShellBroadband for a week, no WiFi, nothing.
    On phone for hours to idiots, and I mean idiots.
    New modem sent, connected today, now won't accept password.... honestly,bit wouldn't.
    One of there idiot advisor's suggested I get on my knees, disconnect BT phone box, which I laughed at his suggestion.
    Finally another advisor came on phone, Ivor.
    15 minutes later, sorted.
    Good ole Ivor.
    But once my contract up, never ever again.

    The connection has never worked properly since we switched. Average connection speed is 0.5mbps and line drops out on a regular basis. Never had this before. Contacted customer services about the issue and they eventually got back to say that they will look at the line. Next I had an email telling me it was fixed. Nothing has changed or got better. I raised a complaint and had an email saying the complaint was now closed. Hours later I had an email acknowledging they had received it. SO they closed it before even confirming its receipt.
    I'm paying to get out of the contract as I need to have a reliable connection for work and because I am disabled. AVOID

    Beware of the Consequences of Dealing with Shell Broadband
    As a Customer you will be subjected to horrendous Customer Service which Shell Broadband will Neither apologise For or Compensate Yourself For as a Paying Customer.

    You will be supplied with an Inferior Router resulting in the Loss of the Service on a frequent basis coupled with Slow Speeds for over a TEN Month Period which Shell Broadband will NOT Compensate Yourself For as a Paying Customer.

    You will be subjected to further Loss of the Broadband Service coupled with Slow Speeds spanning over a THREE Month Period which once more Shell Broadband will Refuse to Compensate Yourself For as a Paying Customer.

    Shell Broadband will Fail to implement an Agreement on the Agreed Date with Yourself and will therefore be in Breach of Contract. However Shell Broadband will then attempt to force Yourself to leave the Service Early in order that Shell Broadband can attempt to impose horrendous Terminations Fees.

    Extracts of Emails received from Shell Broadband with No Authors Name on the Document how appalling.

    Extract ONE

    This decision is final ( No Compensation will be Paid), if you leave within your contract term then early termination fees will apply.

    Extract TWO

    If you would now like to cancel your contract with us Early Termination Charges will apply as you are in contract with us. If you would like to cancel we require 30 days notice for this.

    Shell Broadband are refusing to release the Written Transcripts from their Website regarding the Appalling Customer Service dated 26th October.



    I insisted that All Communications Must be in Writing on 9th November, However since I have been publishing this occurrence on Social Media Shell Broadband now only appear to want to discuss this position by Telephone where no Permanent Record exists.

    Shell Broadband are an extremely aggressive Business to deal with potential Customers PLEASE beware.

    I have just posted a Google Review on this Atrocious Company Sunday 21st November. Potential Customers Please Read these Copious Appalling Reviews from Dissatisfied Customers and Stay Well Clear of Shell Energy at All Costs.

    Failure by Shell Broadband to provide the Service PAID for on Three Separate Occasions Spanning over Eighteen Months



    From January to November 2020 the broadband package failed on a daily basis with copious breaks in the service throughout this period from Shell Broadband.

    Eventually Shell Broadband issued a New Type Router which resolved the position albeit Several Months Later. Why did I not receive this Router in January 2020 when the package started?



    I stated I required compensation for this Loss of Service But none was forthcoming from Shell Broadband. WHY



    From May 2021 to August 2021 again there were numerous instances where the Broadband Failed on a Daily Basis.

    No compensation has been provided by Shell Broadband for this Loss of Service either. WHY



    Agreement starting on 23rd September was NOT implemented by Shell Broadband WHY



    Shell Broadband are now in Breach of the Agreement with Myself for the THIRD Time. WHY



    When I have previously contacted Shell Broadband to report these erroneous instances I have been asked to provide My Name, First Line of My Address, Post Code and My Email Address.



    When I contacted Shell Broadband on 26th October via the website for the FIRST TIME I was asked for My Name, First Line of My Address, Post Code and My Account Number Not My Email Address.



    Shell Broadband then accessed MY ACCOUNT using the information I provided.

    After some time Shell Broadband then asked was I still there to which I immediately replied YES

    I was then disconnected by Shell Broadband WHY - What appalling service not fit for purpose.



    I then contacted Shell Broadband on 26th October by the website for the SECOND TIME

    I provided exactly the same information for the SECOND TIME as the FIRST TIME.

    My Name, First Line of My Address, Post Code and My Account Number.

    Shell Broadband then refused on several occasions to action My request for assistance WHY - what appalling service not fit for purpose.

    I stated that unless My Request was actioned immediately I would cancel My Direct Debit with Shell Broadband. My Request was NOT actioned by Shell Broadband and consequently I have cancelled MY Direct Debit accordingly.



    When I went onto the website that day I discovered that the same package which had NOT been implemented on 23rd September was advertised cheaper WHY ?

    Is this how Shell Broadband regard their established Customers with pure contempt? By offering potential New Customers the same package but considerably cheaper how deplorable.



    I contacted Shell Broadband for a Third Time on 26th October this time by phone. Shell Broadband requested that I provide My Name, First Line of My Address, Post Code and Email Address. It was stated by Shell Broadband that My Account Number was NOT required.



    No consistency whatsoever by poorly trained Staff during the communications that took place on 26th October.



    Shell Broadband have offered a Service that is NOT fit for Purpose on THREE occasions spanning over Several Months - how Abysmal.



    Shell Broadband are refusing to Compensate for their Appalling Customer Service and Treat their paying Customers with Sheer Contempt.



    Shell Broadband are refusing to release the Written Transcripts from their Website regarding this Appalling Customer Service.



    I wish to publish these Transcripts on Social Media so the Public will be fully aware of the Appalling and Aggressive Customer Service provided by Shell Broadband I will update this Page as Events unfold.



    Horrendous Customer Service currently being encountered from Shell Broadband

    Anonymous Emails being sent by Shell Broadband.

    I am currently combating a number of offensive and aggressive Emails from Shell Broadband Staff sent without the Names of the Author how Atrocious. Pure Cowardice on their Part. This is what You can except as a Customer from Shell Broadband beware.



    Potential Customers Beware Shell Energy are now threatening to Terminate My Service Stay Well Clear of Shell Energy at All Costs.

    A complete scam. They offered me a quality internet and it never gave up. And when I wanted to go out with them they sent me a bill for 337 pounds. Not even gasoline will I buy the shell again. They are thiefs.

    We only got it installed last few days after being harassed by staff in Curries informing me I'll get same as sky for less £.
    Absolute ********.

    Whilst the staff are helpful and considerate the overall experience has been dreadful. Moved provider on the 5th November but didn't get broadband connected until evening of the 10th. Since then it has been patchy or non existent. I have found it very stressful.

    Avoid, avoid, avoid
    Customer service appalling.
    Internet speed useless.
    Complained many times during the 12 months I was stuck with them.
    Paid in advance so they actually owe me money but they keep billing me weeks after I've left.
    Now they say I haven't returned router, which I definitely did. They say they will add £35 to my final bill.
    What final bill??

    Beware of this scam.

    Quite the worst broadband service we have ever had by a long shot. Terrible speeds, far lower than we have had for more than a decade, we have had to pay hefty penalty charges for early departure and then months after we left they sent debt collectors on to us because we had forgotten to return their horrendously lousy router. Don't go anywhere near them...

    I agree with others don’t touch them with a barge pole. Awful signal, have had to concede and pay to be let out of the contract. Grumpy and impatient customer service, no doubt in part because they must have so many disappointed customers to deal with. Should never have made the change. Especially given the damage the company has done to the environment over the years, I should have known better. AVOID.

    The broadband speeds have never matched those that I signed up for, never even reaching the lower end of the range. Since beginning of October I am sometimes operating on less than 1Mbs. Customer service take more than a week to respond and the chat service can't intervene with an open complaint. Six weeks of seriously substandard service, although, of course, they do regularly take the monthly subscription. Shocking, do not touch this company!
