Re: Karl Bode tries to create FUD Yes, they ARE. You can also request the electric company to test and replace the meter and have the state authority verify their findings.
Why I know ? Because when my old meter was showing more than what I verified to be using, they HAD to do it and they confirmed my findings, replaced the meter and gave me a refund.
And you trusted the electric company? And you trusted the state inspector not to be bought off by the electric company?
Conspiracy theories abound.
Also, as you point out, the checking of your meter was on a complaint basis. Yet, in the article above, Mr. Bode is demanding even more for bandwidth meters.
