‘Get a grip’ Shell told, as it racks up the most broadband complaints (again)

‘Get a grip’ Shell told, as it racks up the most broadband complaints (again)

Extracts from an article by Ellie McDonald published on Sunday 29 Jan 2023 (Page 15)

Shell Energy has been told to “get a grip” after a surge in broadband and landline complaints.

The telecoms regulator Ofcom also said it was monitoring the firm’s performance because its complaints volume remains far higher than its rivals.

Shell Energy, which started providing broadband in 2016, had 27 complaints per 100,000 broadband customers between July and September 2022 and 20 complaints per 100,000 landline customers. It was also the worst in the previous three months, when it received 31 and 23 complaints per 100,000 customers respectively.

Shell Energy Broadband said: “Ofcom’s table reflects our position up to six months ago. Since then we have invested heavily and made big strides in our processes.

We’re confident that these will be reflected when Ofcom releases its results for the current period.” read more

Never under any circumstances get broadband with this company. After at least 15 phone calls, multiple transfers per call, and over two months of waiting, the broadband I ordered is still not working. They’ve tried their best to resolve complaints, but the inconvenience they’ve caused will not be resolved easily. I could forgive that if my broadband at least works, but due to a technical issue, it has still not been done. They expect it wont be working for a total of 3 months after my order date. Additionally, the customer website never works, meaning I can’t check any of my payment details or other information. Never use this company’s broadband. read more

Shell Energy is the most complained about broadband firm again

Shell Energy is the most complained about broadband firm again

Written by Andrew Wooden

Shell Energy continued to attract the most broadband and landline complaints to Ofcom in Q3 2022, while BT Mobile, Virgin Mobile and iD Mobile were the most complained-about mobile operators.

As it has for the last few quarters, Shell Energy has topped Ofcom’s rankings of complaints it received in the category of broadband and landline. Complaints were mainly around faults and service issues, while landline customers were chiefly unhappy with how complaints were handled. read more

Ofcom tells Shell Energy to ‘get a grip’ on broadband and landline complaints

Ofcom tells Shell Energy to ‘get a grip’ on broadband and landline complaints

UK News: Ofcom has urged Shell Energy to “get a grip” on broadband and landline complaints after the firm attracted significantly higher volumes than other providers.

BT Mobile, Virgin Mobile and iD Mobile are the most complained-about mobile operators, according to the regulator’s latest figures.

Ofcom said it is monitoring Shell’s performance closely.

The regulator said: “We have been engaging with the provider and urged it to get a grip on identifying and addressing the root causes of these issues.

“As always, should we identify specific concerns with how our rules are being followed, we will consider whether it is appropriate to take formal action.”

Virgin Media continued to generate the most pay TV complaints, Ofcom said.

Overall, the volume of complaints between July and September were broadly in line with the previous three months.

Sky had the fewest pay TV and broadband complaints, while EE joined Sky as the least complained-about landline providers. read more

Shell puts 2,000 UK jobs at risk with review of Shell Energy retail division

Shell puts 2,000 UK jobs at risk with review of Shell Energy retail division

Alex Lawson Energy Correspondent: Thu 26 Jan 2023

Shell has put more than 2,000 jobs in the UK at risk after launching a “strategic review” of its domestic energy and telecoms supply division.

The oil and gas supermajor said on Thursday that it had told staff in Shell Energy, which has operations in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany, that it has begun analysis of future options for the business, which could include exiting the sectors.

The UK business, which is headquartered just outside Coventry, has 1.4 million energy customers and about 500,000 broadband users.

The company said it had made the decision against the backdrop of a strategy which includes “continually exploring options to maximise the value of our portfolio and address performance in tough market conditions”.

First Utility and rebranding the business to Shell Energy Retail the following year. It took over the Post Office’s broadband customers in 2021 and now offers broadband at varying speeds across three tariffs. read more

Shell Wants To Bail On Energy Retail Businesses Due To “Tough Market Conditions”

OILPRICE.COM

Shell Wants To Bail On Energy Retail Businesses Due To “Tough Market Conditions”

Shell is looking to bail on its energy retail business across multiple countries amid “tough market conditions,” the company said on Thursday.

The tough market conditions likely refer to higher wholesale prices across Europe that have plagued many retailers, as well as price-capping measures instituted by governments to keep consumers from having to pay exorbitant energy bills.

Shell said on Thursday that it had commenced a review of its retail business in Britain, Norway, and Germany and that the process could take months.

Of the three businesses, Shell’s retail operations in the UK, Shell Energy Retail, is the biggest, boasting 1.4 million customers.

But while it has pegged its European retail arms to stand before the firing squad, Shell’s 2022 annual profit is expected to come in at more than $30 billion, Reuters said, as high oil and gas prices have helped the business improve its overall performance.

Shell sunk $1.5 billion in cash and credit into its British energy retail business last year in order to help with volatile prices and the tough market conditions in the retail segment as natural gas supplies ran short. While Shell managed to survive the last couple of years, other British retailers such as Bulb declared bankruptcy after multiple British power suppliers failed to hedge their future costs back when the getting was good. The cost to taxpayers—billions. read more

Shell considering selling UK energy supply business

Shell is considering selling its UK energy supply business after injecting £1.2bn into the loss-making division to help it cope with rocketing gas and electricity prices.

The company on Thursday said it had launched a strategic review of the business, which supplies 1.4m British households and also operates in the Netherlands and Germany.

It raises the prospect of the unit being sold just six years after Shell first moved into the UK household supply sector. read more

Shell plans strategic review of energy supply business which employs 2,000 in UK

Shell plans strategic review of energy supply business which employs 2,000 in UK

 

Oil giant Shell has raised questions about the future of its energy supply business which employs thousands of people in the UK as companies continue to struggle in a tough market.

Shell said it will launch a “strategic review” of Shell Energy, including its operations in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany.

Launched in 2008 as First Utility and bought a decade later by the oil major, Shell Energy employs around 2,000 people in the UK.

It supplies energy to around 1.4 million homes across the country and broadband to around half a million customers.

It was not clear what options are being looked at by Shell for the unit. Companies who put their business units up for review often sell or restructure them, but sometimes keep them unchanged.

“No decisions have yet been taken on the way forward and our priority remains to ensure our customers in those countries continue to receive a reliable and affordable energy supply, and to provide support for customers who are struggling with the cost of energy and wider cost-of-living pressures,” Shell said on Thursday. read more

Shell to Review Household Energy Businesses in UK, Netherlands, Germany

Shell to Review Household Energy Businesses in UK, Netherlands, Germany

By Elena Vardon

Shell PLC on Thursday said it is starting a strategic review of its home energy retail business in the U.K., the Netherlands and Germany, but stressed that no decisions have yet been made.

The London-based energy giant said that the review is likely to take a number of months, adding that the wholesale and B2B energy supply businesses aren’t part of this review.

It didn’t say whether any jobs would be affected by the decision, but confirmed that Shell Energy Retail Ltd. currently employs around 2,000 people.

Shell said that the review is part of its ‘power progress’ strategy which includes exploring options to address performance in tough market conditions and maximize the value of its portfolio.

The company’s priority remains to ensure customers in those countries continue to receive their energy supply, and to provide support for those who are struggling with the cost of energy and wider cost-of-living pressures, it said. read more

Man hit with £29k Shell Energy bill after supplier error

24 Jan 2023

A man has been hit with a £29,000 energy bill following a mistake by his supplier.

Patrick Collins, from Henley, Oxfordshire, said attempts to resolve the problem with Shell Energy had so far failed.

The bill was his first from the firm after his previous supplier, Green Energy, went bust in 2021.

After being contacted by the BBC, Shell Energy said it accepted Mr Collins did not owe £29,000.

It added it was working to rectify the problem. read more

In 2021, thousands of Dutch citizens took one of the largest carbon emitters in the world to court and won. Together with Friends of the Earth Netherlands (Milieudefensie) they won a historic court case against Royal Dutch Shell, the parent company of Shell Group, forcing the company to take climate action.

The judge ruled that Shell’s current climate policy would contribute to a level of climate change that would be so dangerous that it would impose a threat to human rights. read more

Shell to spend $450m on carbon offsetting as fears grow that credits may be worthless

Shell to spend $450m on carbon offsetting as fears grow that credits may be worthless

The fossil fuel firm Shell has set aside more than $450m (£367m) to invest in carbon offsetting projects, and plans to spend the equivalent of half the current market for nature offsets every year, the Guardian can reveal.

But a joint investigation by the Guardian, Die Zeit and Source Material into Verra, the world’s leading carbon standard for the rapidly growing $2bn voluntary offsets market, has found, based on analysis of a significant percentage of the projects, that more than 90% of their rainforest offset credits – among the most commonly used by companies – are likely to be “phantom credits” and do not represent genuine carbon reductions. read more

My service with shell went live on the 1st Nov 22, a few drop outs of service occasionally, but nothing major, it did not affect streaming or kids gaming etc, so we can live with it. The 9th December was the last day of any broadband (I miss watching Netflix on a big screen) The router is just displaying the information light and nothing more, its not making any attempt to connect, so I make all the required checks, resets, switching it off etc to no avail. I get through to Shell quite easily and the tech guy seems genuinely helpful, line tests carried out etc and says open reach need to come out which will take 3 to 4 days, but nothing is confirmed until I hear from them. I explained that I felt the router was probably the issue and questioned if it would make more sense to have a new router sent out first rather than waste time and money on an engineer, he says its not possible. read more

No problems when with the Post Office but now continual problems with Shell broadband speed and its continuity. I’m supposed to receive a speed between 35 Mbs and 45 Mbs. I get as low as 11 Mbs. I complain for which one has to wait around 30 mins for someone to answer the phone. I’m told that I must give 3 possible days when an engineer needs to visit but be prepared to be charged if I’m not at home but for which there is no reciprocal arrangement if the engineer doesn’t turn up, which has happened to me. In fact the problem can be solved without an engineer’s visit and this can be undertaken remotely. Then my speed is restored to around 36 Mbs (min for me should be 35) after which it is slowly decreased until I have to complain again. It seems like I’m being robbed of the service I pay for. As it can be quickly reset I believe that it is my ISP who is throttling my speed. Broken contract – new provider here I come. read more

Trying to cancel my order of broadband…

Trying to cancel my order of broadband in my new place after months of having no Internet in my old place from them. I am calling in my cool off period and they hang up everytime I try to answer the phone or worse still after waiting on hold for 30+ minutes on hold after hearing I want to cancel my order. Terrible company. Terrible customer service. Avoid avoid avoid

Poor broadband, poor customer service

£18.99 for guaranteed 10Mb broadband, actual broadband speed maxes out at 5Mb, is usually 2Mb, lots of deals for new customers, disinterested customer support aren’t interested in fixing their broken infrastructure or offering the same deals to existing customers, so I’m off to plusnet, slightly cheaper and guaranteed 19.7Mb….. read more

The Sunday Times Business Person of the Year 2022: The shortlist

The Sunday Times

In a year buffeted by war, falling markets and government upheaval, we present the shortlist for the business person who has stood out above the rest

Ben van Beurden, Shell

The Dutchman will call time on a 40-year career at Shell in 2023, having spent nine years in the hot seat. He gambled early in his tenure on the £36 billion takeover of gas giant BG Group, relocated Shell’s head office to London, and cut its dividend when the oil price tanked during Covid. But the company has surged this year on the back of higher oil prices stoked by the Ukraine war. Van Beurden, 64, leaves Shell in a fitter state and with plans to embrace green energy — read more

Disgusting treatment of 86 year old by Shell Energy: DO NOT GET THEIR BROADBAND

DO NOT GET THEIR BROADBAND!!

DO NOT GET THEIR BROADBAND!!
My mother-in-law, 84 yrs old, was switched to Shell Energy via the Post Office a couple of years ago, without consultation. She’s never received a paper bill, never set up an online account and had 1 initial letter which she forgot all about..
Having early memory loss issues & a service outrageously slow, she thought her laptop had broken.. @£32 per mth (!!)
We switched companies, providing notification & she’s literally received dozens of threatening emails since, demanding money for a router they didn’t provide, termination fees for a contract she never signed and attempts to access a final bill I already paid.. I’ve called many times, explained the circumstances-they said they would stop.
This is harassment of an elderly woman, shame on you. read more

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. read more

Shell’s UK Unit Got £1.2 Billion This Year to Weather Energy Crisis

William MathisBloomberg News: 8 Dec 2022

(Bloomberg) — Shell Plc gave its British retail energy arm roughly £1.2 billion ($1.5 billion) of financial backing this year to survive wild swings in natural gas and power prices.

UK energy retailers have been under extreme stress for more than a year as a supply crunch drove wholesale prices to record highs. Dozens failed in 2021 as costs soared and regulations prevented them from raising tariffs. Those that survived incurred hefty expenses taking on the customers of collapsed rivals. read more

Shell injects $1.5 bln into UK retail power business to help it weather volatility

Reuters: Ron Bousso: Dec 08, 2022

LONDON — Shell has injected nearly $1.5 billion into its British energy retail business this year to help it weather huge volatility in power prices that caused the collapse of several rival UK power utilities, Shell Energy said in a filing on Thursday.

Britain’s power utilities have been rocked by huge fluctuations in energy prices since the end of 2021 due to a shortage in natural gas supplies, which was exacerbated after Russia sharply reduced supplies to Europe following its invasion of Ukraine in February.

Shell Energy’s operating loss rose to 102.4 million pounds in 2021 from 83.6 million pounds a year earlier, according to the company’s financial results, released on Thursday.

The loss was “principally driven by market conditions. In particular, the unprecedented rise in energy prices in the latter part of 2021 adversely impacted financial performance, including increased costs as a result of supplier failures in the market and the inability to pass on higher energy costs,” according to the results filing. read more

Levies will force oil giant to ‘rerun the economics’ on future projects, says UK chairman

By Matt Oliver and Szu Ping Chan: 21 November 2022 • 7:03pm

Shell is reviewing plans to invest £25bn in Britain’s energy system after Jeremy Hunt raided the industry for £55bn in windfall taxes.

David Bunch, Shell’s UK chairman, said the expanded levy announced in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement is forcing the company to re-examine a slew of projects in the pipeline, from North Sea investments to renewable energy schemes. read more

My broadband account with the P.O was changed over Shell energy, the contract expired end of July 2022. I could not understand their charges to renew my contract so switched to BT, maybe not the cheapest provider but great service.
I returned the router ( supplied f.o.c by the P.O. )and received confirmation that I had sent them proof of postage. over 3 months later I am still receiving threatening e-mails demanding £35.00 for the router. I have spent hours on the phone and sending e-mails to try and resolve this matter but I am not going to waste any more time trying to reason with this useless bunch of morons, and will try to resolve this matter through the ombudsman. read more

Awful customer service and broadband doesn’t work!

Broadband does not work intermittently.
30 minutes on hold every time I call them to resolve the issue, 30 minutes troubleshooting.
Then I get off the phone and it breaks again.
Customer service is awful, they treat you like an idiot and I cannot find anyone to help. This is a disgrace.

Huge mistake switching broadband to Shell

It appears Shell either has extremely poor or no customer service at all. Recently signed up for broadband which drops out twice daily.
After 1 day I’m still waiting for the call back I was promised and the email I sent has not been replied to.
I never had these problems with EE and will be going back to them asap. I will also be taking my gas and electric to a company that I can trust. Please get in touch Shell as I’d like to say my goodbyes. read more
