How do Smart Meters work?

Smart Meters are able to communicate wirelessly with us via common communications networks. These are based on Telefonica’s mobile phone network in South and Central England and all of Wales, and longer wavelength radio waves for the north of England and Scotland.

If you want more detailed information, the Department of Energy and Climate Change has produced The Smart Metering System Leaflet which explains how Smart Meters work.
