Strange Meter Reading

I submitted meter readings for gas and electricity, which were accepted. A couple of days later I noticed that a new ‘customer read’ gas reading had appeared, just slightly higher than the one I supplied.

I have 1st gen smart meters, which I’d been told would be dumb, but would hopefully become smart again in the near future. Has this started? It’s the only way I can think to explain the mysterious reading.

Has anyone else had this? Thanks.

I believe when a meter reader visits their readings are described as “Customer read.”

I wonder if this is what has happened here?

Ah, could be, I didn’t think of that. Cheers.
