You may be an existing Post Office Broadband customer or maybe you have heard of them because of their many services across the UK. In February 2021, Post Office decided to sell their broadband business to Shell Energy. Shell has stated they will not change prices for existing customers. Perhaps in the future this will change. So how can you contact customer service if you are an existing or prospective customer?

Frequently asked Questions about Post Office Broadband
My wireless router is dropping signal constantly
You can try a couple of things before contacting customer service:
-Move your device closer to your router, or move your router into a more central spot in the house.
-Try reducing the number of appliances that are on in the house to see if this helps,
-Restart your device, disconnect from the network and then retry to connect with the router using the security key.
If you are still having trouble, an ethernet cable might be a good solution for you. Your devices can be connected via a cable into the yellow LAN ports on the back of the router. Usually a cable is supplied with your router, or you can find one online at affordable prices.
If you can only connect to the internet from your computer to your Router via an Ethernet cable, then your connection problem lies with the Router's wireless functionality.
My broadband has suddenly stopped working
If your broadband was working fine, and you have tried turning everything on and off again and re-entering passwords, check to see if there is a service fault in your area. During inclement weather or due to roadworks or construction, sometimes the lines can be damaged. If this is in fact the case, Post Office or the local council will ensure this is resolved in a timely manner.
