Can I change supplier now? As Shell still didn't contacted with me, they just sent me their tariff plan which I don't like at all.

The advice is not to try to switch during the transition, as it will only make things more difficult, for you and for Shell.

Also bear in mind that most suppliers are now only offering fixed deals which are a lot more expensive than the price capped variable tariff we will be on with Shell.

Out of interest what don't you like about the tariff that you will be on with Shell. As the Tariffs are subject to the Ofgem price cap I doubt you will find anything cheaper, but if you do, I hope you come back to report on who you intend to switch to.
