We’re excited to announce that we’ve completed the purchase of Post Office’s broadband and telephony business. This means welcoming over 450,000 new broadband customers into the Shell Energy family.

We’ll start moving Post Office customers over to Shell Energy in August. In the meantime, their service will continue without any changes or interruptions. This includes pricing, how they pay their bills and access to customer services. We can’t wait to welcome them on board and introduce customers to a world of new benefits, including exclusive savings on fuel and more with the Shell Go+ loyalty programme. 

The customer experience is at the heart of what we do - we’ve even been recognised by Resolver with an award for our broadband customer service. That’s why it’s our focus to deliver a smooth transition, and a warm welcome to Shell Energy.

We’ll begin contacting Post Office broadband customers shortly to introduce ourselves properly and explain the next steps. We look forward to our future together.

We’ve included some more information below on questions you may have, ahead of this exciting transition.


Why has Shell Energy purchased Post Office’s broadband and telephony business?

We’ve been offering fast, reliable broadband to thousands of customers across Britain since 2016. We were chosen by Post Office as they had confidence that we would match their values and provide the same quality of service their customers expect.

Reducing emissions to net-zero will need smart energy systems and smarter homes. New technology like smart thermostats and, in future, home batteries will depend on a reliable internet connection. 

Broadband has grown into a service as essential as home energy. That’s why we’re pleased to be able serve more customers with renewable electricity, gas and fast, reliable broadband.
