Re: Smart Meter, Yae or Nae?

Time to get back on topic, enough of this utter cobblers.

If you dont want one, great, your choice.
This is not the place for stupidity and nonsense, there are plenty of crackpot sites you can post that.

It's never to make things simpler for the customer, if by happy coincidence life is made simpler they'll take it but the usual reason is to reduce the workforce and whilst this might not be the primary objective of smart meters no one is going to deny meter readers haven't lost their jobs because of them

Sometimes you have no choice.
Octopus give you the "choice", but some tarrifs require you to set 30 minutes (agile for example). If you dont, you cant use that tarrif.

If you want smart Tariffs Octopus needs it set to every 30mins, atleast for the Tracker and Agile and my Home Mini device gives me a readings instantaneously for the last 5mins which is great.
