A week and you dont have a reading yet ?

I thought the point of them was they could do readings every 1/2 hour or so.

They do readings every half an hour for lecy, once a day for gas. Then they transmit the data to the energy company once day, some times it may take 2-3 days due to local problems.

In my case, I live at the bottom of a hill. An electromagnetic cloud parked at the bottom of the hill (over several houses) for few days, cutting off all transmissions (no satellite TV or Freeview via aerial, mobile signal too). After few days Octopus got all of the data.

Re: Smart Meter, Yae or Nae?

I found this guide for Octopus users by Guy Lipman very informative. It includes a section regarding the smart meters they use, and their weaknesses, under the Consumption Data section.
