Smart meter

Hi

I keep getting emails about getting a smart meter fitted but it says I can’t have one due to my gas meter been on the ground at the front of my house, surely this isn’t true? British Gas were suppose to fit one last year before I switched to bulb but the day they booked in it rained so they could not do it, it’s really frustrating to habe to keep doing meter reading each month. Does anyone else habe this issue.

Thanks
