What is a network interface card (NIC) and why has one been installed in the meter at my property?

A network interface card, or NIC, is a small card installed in the meter that allows communication between the electricity meter and associated systems.

In the advanced meter installed at your property, the card will eventually facilitate communication between the meter and our systems. Currently, the card is not communicating, however we expect to have this feature working within the next few years.
