Smart meter availability

Hi all. I’ve been sent an email stating that the smart meters are now available. I went through the survey, and it turns out that since my gas meter is in a brown box (partially buried), that my house isn’t suitable for one? Surely half the UK have this problem then!?

Maybe not half but I do believe others have signal problems, My personal opinion is that we are only now beginning to find out all the various issues with smart meters. I have no doubt they will all be sorted in time, but the governments rush to get utility companies to install them has caused major problems.
