My contract with Scottish Power is coming to an end and I'm looking at switching to OVO or to First Utility (who are a bit cheaper). I have smart meters (Secure Liberty 100) installed by First Utility when I was with them previously. They are currently functioning as dumb meters.
Astonishingly, First Utility have advised me that if I switch to them, there is no way they can make my meters smart again (except replacing them).
Will the meters become smart again if I switch to OVO?

Updated on 10/09/2020 - Please be advised that OVO can communicate with electricity Secure Liberty 100 and 110, and the gas Secure Liberty EG4v10 smart meters. OVO and lots of other suppliers are now fitting SMETS2 smart meters. Check engineer availability and book in your appointment here
The suppliers listed below should still be able to communicate with your Secure Liberty 100 smart meter, but you may need to check with them directly.
The SMETS1 Secure Liberty 100/110 smart meters are compatible with OVO Energy and the following suppliers:
Utilita Energy Limited
Co-operative Energy Ltd
First Utility Ltd
Electricity Plus Supply Ltd t/a The Utility Warehouse
