We surveyed new customers 60 to 120 days after switching to Shell - here's what they told us:
Regular emails were sent to notify me about every stage of the switch. Shell is definitely great value for money and we have had no issues with the service. Best decision we made in changing to them and wish we had heard of them sooner!
I am happy with the service, and have no issues with speed so far. I don’t use it all that much and live alone so am the only one using it. I like the cost and I like that they mostly leave me alone and don’t send a bunch of emails. It took ages to get it set up because it didn’t work at first and they acted a bit like I was stupid and couldn’t figure out how to plug stuff in or press a reset button - which was annoying. But it works now and as long as it continues to work I don’t have any issues.
The switch was pretty straight forward and easy to follow. I can't fault Shell Energy so far and I'm happy with my choice. I'm saving money too and the customer service is very good, very polite and professional.
On average, people switching to Shell saved around £6.87 per month, and rated their Shell broadband 8.4/10.
