    Gave them 27 days notice of change of address, when I wasn't connected on day 28 I called them only to be told there is a provision problem and would have to wait a further 10 days. Nobody contacted me in the 28 days to let me know there was a problem, instead they waited for me to call them. Asking for a refund of debit order (they actually billed me for a service they couldn't connect) I was told I need to wait 3 weeks. All of this is due to their incompetence and lack of customer service. Don't even try to speak to manager or team leader, you have better luck summoning your gran from the dead.

    All I can say is we;ve been counting the months until we can go with another ISP. For a multi-billion pound company, the functionality of the website is deplorable. I can't ever view my bills, important links on the website don't function. It's actually shocking how bad Shell are as an ISP.

    OK. I went for the cheap 12 mth deal and now regret it. Switch over was smooth but there are PPP connection losses every day for a few hours. Next time I'll pay a bit more for reliability. Cheap but not worth the lack of reliability.

    Having just switched providers on the suggestion of Uswitch, all I can say is that Uswitch must be on one hell off a backhander. What a load of Garbage, customer service is a pile stinky stuff and they don't know their job very well, not only having cocked things up but then try to blame me for the mistake and can't or wont do something about it. I'm one unhappy new customer roll on 18 months time when I can go else where.

    Don't go there if you want to have control over what comes into your house as Shells offers no content filtering. And if you want to leave Shell because they are potentially endangering the wellbeing of your children - they don't care and make you pay for it!

    Ended account as put up pricing during a fixed term deal without consent and after cancelling and returning router was charged £35 even with proof of postage.

    Trying to ring this billion pound company is a joke in itself. 30 minutes to get an answer whilst being referred to the online portal or app - which failed constantly to loan.

    Avoid this company like you would Covid.

    When it works it’s been fine. Turns out they seem to have faulty routers. They’ve sent 2 out now and both don’t work on Wi-Fi reliably. Open Reach have been twice and confirm the line is perfect. I only changed to shell 8/11/22 been a nightmare since. Customer service hard to get to. Numerous router resets. Last engineer tried my old EE router and guess what. Yep perfect internet access. Shell routers were connected to our devices by Wi-Fi would work for a while after reset. Then drop out. The thing was I could stream TV all day long through Ethernet but Wi-Fi no go. Now running perfectly on EE router. Waiting for shell to compensate for on off service since 08/11 and a small fortune in mobile data as we all have very little on contract and bought loads as we use Wi-Fi at home most of the time. I’m stuck for 18 months. If I were you I would look elsewhere for a service provider

    Totally disorganised. Issued me a bill for £35, then a reminder and finally referred me to their debt collector over non return of a router. I had returned it, had the proof, and repeatedly told them I'd returned it. Never again.

    They don't reply to emails or complaints about end of service queries. Sent me a bill which I can't see, as account closed. They won't confirm receipt of router retained. They won't answer a query on the bill. The CEO has failed to help.

    Post office was the best Internet provider i had ever had and then along came shell energy. They took over and what a shock to the system it was, our Internet speed plummeted despite us being on one of the highest speed pakages. I suspect we were down graded on the switch over and im lucky if i get a consecutive 5 hours of Internet without if completely dropping out. Overall its just not a good company. But thats not the worst of it. We recived an email saying the prices are increasing and we had 30 days to switch if we wanted to and we would get no exit fees. So we did just that the very same day, finding a cheaper more reliable company and set it all up. We even sent an email informing shell that we were taking them up on the offer to switch without fees. And then got an email telling us we ere gettng charged exit fees. I phoned and was told theres jothing they can do because its already on the system and its my fault because i was supposed to phone them before trying to switch and ask to be let out of the contract.which is not what ofgem states. I do not have to ask permission to switch, and the only time i need to inform them i am switching is if my provider doesn't use openreach cables. So no im not pleased at all with this company

    Shell took over my post office account. Having read other reviews I realise that I have been fortunate not to have had any problems with internet or phone. However I am only getting 20mps and I am pretty sure my PO contract was offering 35-ish.
    However, Shell seem to be totally incapable of organising a direct debit and kept cutting me off. In the end I had to resort to paying online each month. At around £42 a month for “Superfast Broadband” and any time calls, it’s not a cheap option (not even fibre) and I am thankful that my contract is about to finish.
    They never answer the phone, but greet you with a recorded message advising you to hang up if you’re driving. Do they think I’m a complete moron?
    They should stick to oil and wrecking the environment. I’m off to Gigaclear and paying at least 40% less for a much faster connection.

    Please avoid. Broadband was pretty expensive but went with it because of the high speeds promised. Speeds were good when stable but regularly experienced drop outs and generally unreliable. Customer service really disinterested and bored which made me think they probably get a lock of flack for the poor service generally. Definitley wouldn't go back to them again.

    Interesting to read the comments on here that reflect my own experience. Several years with PO Broadband with no problems. Now Shell have taken over and a few months later I am suddenly having intermittent speed problems - my normal speed is 35Mb/s but it is dropping to about 0.2Mb/s.

    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.

    I endorse the recent comments. An abysmal company to deal with. This is my 4th day without access to my emails. I have spent HOURS on the phone and online chats just going round in circles. Clearly staff don't know what they are doing. More than once I have been sent back to Post Office who returned me to Shell because the "migration" was complete! Never had this problem with Post Office. The incompetence of this company is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!

    I was a Post Office customer and migrated to Shell. Since then I too am unable to receive incoming calls on the landline. I can make calls and the broadband works. I have tried to call the call centre. When I did get through they did a test and said that they would call back ! How, the landline is unable to take incoming calls ? The Asian call centre reading from a script was unable to comprehend the issue. I have had no incoming calls for a week now. I have tried to contact them again but with o success. The only answer is to jump ship to another provider, which I have done. This prompted the only email response I have had from Shell to state that I may not be able to keep my phone number. Nice bit of PR Shell you muppets.

    Shell took over my broadband after being with previous supplier for a number of years. After a further 12 months requested a new router on line via the chat link. Eventually gave up and visited a comparison site and found a much better deal. Since they received notification of switching my broadband has been pants! They even have the nerve to charge a disconnection fee. Not pressed!!

    The actual WiFi itself is no issue. The issue is their completely incompetent staff. No problems cancelling the contract (shocker) - that was October.2 different staff members had confirmed that there was £47-something credited to my account and a refund of said credit would be paid on the 2nd of November. It has not. Talking to their customer services was like talking to a wet leaf. I went round and round in circles only to be told that there wasn't an account in my name,so there was nothing credited to said account and whoever had said there was, shouldn't have because my credit was 0 despite one worker saying I could use the credit on my account to pay for a different broadband deal if I wanted to (I havent). Not only have they taken whatever was on my account, they've also tried charging me £35 for a router I've already sent back??

    Truly awful "customer service"....if you can call talking to a brick wall customer service

    New contract for my 90 year old mother who has dementia and severe memory issues. Broadband was installed for the sole purpose of setting up internal monitoring in her flat so family members could ensure she was safe and well. Decided on a Shell package with home phone and broadband as listed on the MSE website back in August 22. This has honestly been my worst decision ever and would strongly advise anyone NOT to go with Shell, especially as their "customer service" is absolutely diabolical. Ironically my problem lies with the phone line as the broadband has(so far) been working satisfactorily. From the point of activation the phone line ceased to operate. Outgoing calls cut out after entering 3 digits, incoming calls didn't ring on the handset. There then followed 3 months of infuriating and lengthy holds to Shell customer services plus a multitude of complaint emails with various agents suggesting frankly ridiculous solutions. All that was needed was to get an engineer out to the exchange/green cabinet and check the wiring. Two booked engineer visits went by with no one turning up. When I complained after the last no-show the agent decided to book a further appointment and classify my mother as a "vulnerable" customer. This engineer actually turned up, called me from the now working land line and advised that the wiring in the cabinet was not connected to my mother's landline. This 5 minute fix took three months to happen. Case closed but no apology or credit for lack of landline. However, have now received bill for two engineer call outs at £60 each, one of which was a no-show. Don't think we'll be paying these as problem was outside the home. Shell, stay well clear.

    Changed from SKY frpr broadband and telephone. from day 1 some callers to my landline got the message "This number does not exist" Shell were unable to fix the problem and after 4 months I went back to SKY. To add insult to injury Shell employed a debt collection company to chase me for £35 for the failure to return their router !!! unbeliveable

    The biggest issues with the company that I've experienced are a rubbish router and poor customer service. I was paying BT a fortune so decided it was time to change providers, the second I switched to FU (how ironic) the performance dropped to zero. I'm supposed to be on the 35Mbps product, but I couldn't even get a stable connection to Netflix servers let alone actually watch a programme or film from start to finish.

    I raised the complaint immediately and it took them a couple of weeks to even respond. It's clear they allocate your message to a new advisor each time you respond, as it's like you're starting again from scratch. About two months into trying to resolve and getting nowhere, I got an email from one first-class complaints advisor who stated "there is no issue". Okay mate, nice one. Another advisor stated "we can send someone around to check your hardware, but you'll probably have to pay for it". Not happening.

    So this morning, granted my TV and phone are both WiFi and will have been potentially doing their own thing in the background, but I'm trying to load a webpage on my laptop and it's like dial-up over a modem in the 90s. So I run a speedcheck through a website and it gives me 0.32Mbps, absolutely laughable. I live in a 1 bed flat and the router has to be in the kitchen because that's where the master socket is, so I went and sat on the kitchen floor and to be fair, it did then manage a lightning fast 7Mbps (of the 35 that I'm paying for). I turned my TV and phone off, and ran a wired connection into my laptop, and did finally manage to get 32Mpbs out of it. Unplugged the cable and again, sat a foot from the router and with no other devices switched on except a fridge, the speed dropped to 12Mbps.

    In conclusion, the router is dog-poop - this is despite the fact that the one half decent thing one of their advisors has done is send me an "upgraded" router. If this is the best they can manage, I'd a) factor the price of your own router into the deal you're looking at, or b) just go elsewhere. I considered looking up the settings and then trying to get my BT router set up to connect to their network instead, but their website is unsurprisingly rubbish and I absolutely dread the prospect of phoning them up and having to speak to them, given the experience so far. I certainly won't be staying with them beyond the end of this contract.

    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.??

    Absolutely appalling service. They took over my Post Office account, without my knowledge, and stopped taking any money - then they land me with a HUGE bill. Sorted that in November and I set up a Direct Debit with them expecting them to take monthly...NOPE I contacted them after 3 months to ask why they had not taken it to find they now expected me to pay another HUGE bill, in my reckoning it should have been less than £60, 3 months at £18.99 but they tell me I owed over £370!!! So I ask for an explanation...nope they took it out of my account the same day...I am still waiting for an explanation and will be looking for an alternative provider....steer clear

    This outfit must surely be the worst for phone/broadband. It’s impossible to actually speak with anyone. Post Office, my former provider, did their customers no favours when they sold their phone/broadband operation to Shell Energy. Avoid Shell Energy like the plague (or Covid).

    I was a Post Office Homephone customer who had to move to Shell Broadband. Since joining it has been nothing but problems trying to log into my account to view my bill. I get the email to advise my bill is ready. I can log in to read emails but when I try to log into my account to view bills it says the password is wrong!
    I've logged complaints via their website and all I get is automated emails saying they are busy....perhaps they should have done more testing and got things fixed before moving all of Post Office Customers onto their systems which clearly are not up to scratch. They take my money by Direct Debit but I cannot access the bill to verify they are charging me correctly! What a mess!
    In my latest complaint I have made it clear there is no way I would have chosen to move, and now I'm locked in for a year as I'd locked into the Post Office plan and that has just moved across. One not happy customer!

    I was a customer of Post Office Homephone and never had an issue with them. Sadly they sold out to Shell and since then things have been difficult! I can't access my bill using my old account details as I was promised so I can no longer separate personal emails from 'business' emails and just recently they put the prices up despite me signing up to a fixed tarrif with Post Office literally a few days before the company transferred me across to Shell.
    Logging complaints takes forever to get a response so I am still waiting for someone to get back to me. They say they are experiencing a higher than normal level of contact - I'm not surprised - probably all dissatisfied Post Office customers! Not sure how much longer I will stay with them.

    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.

    The worst customer services I have every dealt with, rude, law breaking (some of the call staff refuse to do a SAR on request and many have no idea what it even is) The reliability of their internet they inherited from the Post office. DONOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY

    The first bill will charge you for when your fibre connection is installed which is not clearly explained.
    This mean my first bill charged for an extra 18 days before the fibre connection went live.
    You will have to waste a lot of time challenging this practice to get a refund for hidden costs
    In hindsight, it's better to pay more for a more reputable supplier

    I've never done a review before but wish I'd believed these 1 star reviews prior. Shell energy has an unreliable internet connection, and I felt like I worked for them and not the other way around as they treated me like dirt, continually trying to find way to get more money out of me 3 months after I had left them.

    This BROADBAND IS NOT FIT FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN! AVOID!! This is because there are no parental controls.
    I was told that internationals calls were free and unlimited. But it was not so. There is no account for the customers and hence the customer would not know the usage and billing on the website. The phone does not show incoming numbers. The broadband will be activated after the cooling period and you will be tied to this nonsense broadband for 18 months.

    I also have BB through Shell and the service has been nothing short of appalling. Setup a Direct Debit which Shell despite saying the payment would be taken did not request payment from my bank. Clearly the DD system is beyond the understanding of some.
    However, my contract is now over and having search for a new provided have been advised by Shell Broadband that my final bill will include a cease charge of £15 as clearly shown in section 5.11 on page 16 of 27.
    This is a heads up to those looking to move to Shell, you will have to pay £15 to leave then at any time in the future.

    Worst company I have ever had to deal with, from the very start when we couldn’t get internet for the first 10 days. To now 3 months on when I’m being charged for call-outs I didn’t ask for. Just trying to get this sorted and call out charge taken off my bill has taken so much time. Live chat is awaful and call centre is not much better. Do not go with them you will regret it like me.
