Roaming SIM card for automatic smart meter reading

More than 26 million British homes will have new smart meters devices installed to monitor gas and electricity usage by the end of 2020.

Just like a mobile phone smart meters use a SIM card to enable communication with the utility company for accurate automatic meter readings.

Not all UK homes have good mobile coverage and signal strength can vary depending on network location. When this happens customers often complain that their smart meter isn’t transmitting readings.
