According to a recent government report, the number of domestic smart meters and non-domestic advanced meters installed has hit 5.87 million. 

"As at 31 December 2016 there were 4,863,300 meters operated in smart mode by large energy suppliers and a further 83,700 meters operated in smart mode by small energy suppliers across domestic properties in Great Britain. Overall, this represents around 10 per cent of all domestic meters,” according to the department for business, energy & industrial strategy (BEIS).
