There is a race to install, or at least 'offer', smart meters in the UK. The country is committed to offering the option of smart meters to all citizens by 2020. It needs to accelerate current rates to 24 per minute, according to research by Which?, a consultancy. British Gas has installed the most smart meters (4.5 million) and is doing so at the rate of one per 25 seconds, amounting to a total of four per minute. That said, not everyone might be interested in smart meters. Numerous news reports have catalogued the horrors of smart meters, which range from high bills to weak connections, and exhorted customers to say no to smart meters.
