Already happened.

But they are not necessarily that smart!

One reason I switched from <big_6_supplier_with_foreign_name> is that they were pestering to install a smart meter even though it would be 1st generation. Whereas Bulb promises that they are using only 2nd-generation meters, which should be able to “talk” to any supplier.
So I’m not sure what @rapidegg means about “not necessarily that smart”.

Because if they don’t talk to BULB who arranged to put them in then how can you be confident that they will talk to anyone else?
