What is different about an advanced meter compared to the old meter?

The new meter is considered advanced capable, as it has a communication card installed that will, in the future, enable communication between the meter and our metering systems. This will include the ability for us to read your meter remotely. (Also see: “What is a network interface card or NIC?”)

At this stage, the advanced meter being installed at your property will still need to be read manually, until the supporting communications network is activated.
