So I get a phone call this morning from my supplier saying they wrote to me about Smart Meter installation. We get virtually no mobile signal here (I have to use whiffy calling) and I am aware they are incompatible with other providers. So I declined. However, they said they would have to test the meter as per regulations and replace if necessary. I did some reading into it and checking the GOV website did indeed state that domestic meters needed testing within a period of time. What's the deal here? Are they trying to creatively replace the meter anyway or is it likely that if they find nothing wrong with the existing meter, they will leave it as is? I did read that if they do replace, they might replace with a Smart Meter but you can elect to have the smart features disabled. I am not really anti-them per se, what annoys me is it doesn't work with every provider and it will become a dumb meter again if I change suppliers. I've also read some horror stories although I take these with a pinch of salt.
