I have a smet1 meter with OVO
I am with Npower for gas and asked them to supply a smart meter, its taken months but on arrival today they could not fit a smart meter as the signal is only 7 (that must be too low, am not sure)
Im in a terrace house and the electric comes into the meter at the back and the gas at the front with the meter being in a box outside at the front.
I wonder if ever it will be possible to go dual fuel smart and does the new meters (smet2) make it easier to get a signal.
If OVO are now more competitive then i may go dual fuel with them but would need to research first, the renewal dates for OVO and Npower will not coincide so going dual fuel will cause me to pay an exit fee whatever way i go.

To have smart meters for both fuels, you need to have dual fuel with the same provider. This is because the gas meter communicates with the electricity meter which in turn communicates with your supplier.
You'll find lots of hand info about the SMETS2 meters and how it works with providing a better signal here.
Hope this helps!
