Weights and Measures
A few years ago, I had issues with an electric meter (the dial readings and AMR chip were off by a few thousand kWh). I called the utility and got the runaround. Only after I called the state DPU they replaced the faulty meter. The old meter was analog with a remote reading chip. The new meter is digital and the meter and AMR chip are integrated.
In Massachusetts, any meter used for billing is inspected by the weights and measures inspector for the city or town where the device is located. Oil trucks, gas pumps, and even taxi meters are all inspected.
All of my CPE (including my EMTA) is customer owned. The only Comcast owned equipment in my house is the CableCards in the two TiVO boxes I own.
