When can we finally have Smart meters for those who already had them with precious suppliers

I switched to Bulb a couple of years or more ago and yet I still have to read my meter as apparently the smart meters I have from OVO can’t be transferred and Bulb keep telling me the new ones aren’t ready. How much longer do we have to put up with this?

All SMETS1 meters are supposed to be enrolled in the DCC and become smart again by the end of this year. I wonder if that deadline will be achieved.
