Smart meter not suitable for gas????

Why can’t smart meter be fitted when gas meter is in box at front of house ??? Mine is about 3 foot above ground, and friends have smart meters fitted with same kind of set up with different suppliers.

@Ian_Pam they can be fitted in a box, I’ve the same setup and got mine fitted last week

When I tried to book a smart meter connection it clearly states a brown box at front of house is not suitable at the moment ???

Well DavieMc you confirm what I thought, BUT , I am only asking the question because the BULB booking site for fitting a smart meter does not allow meters fitted to this kind of meter box ??? Over to you BULB …!!!

Hi Ian, if I remember correctly I had trouble with the same question when trying to book. If you have the same setup as above you should be fine, mine is the same and has been done this week.
