Do I need Wi-Fi to get a smart meter?

No. You don't need Wif-Fi to get a smart meter.

Smart meters send readings to suppliers via a central network called the Smart Meter Wide Area Network, this doesn't rely on Wi-Fi at all.

Some of the In-Home Displays we supply are able to connect to Wi-Fi. In the future, if you choose to connect your display to Wi-Fi, you will see more detailed information in your Bulb Account online.
