Smart meters

I have a first gen smart meter which is quite frankly crap, every time I give a gas meter reading it asks me to take a photo of the reading. The meter is right under the stairs and is a bit awkward to get to. Is it possible to have these stupid meters taken out and go back to traditional ones?

I think Bulb would only replace them with the second generation smart meters they’re currently rolling out. Plenty posts on the subject of current SMETS2 installations.
