    I’ve heard that smart meters add all "technical losses" to bills. In the end, you still pay more than if you set a regular meter.

    Not really true. technical losses are always added to bills, whatever the meter. Smart meters (apparently) make it easier to quantify the extent of the losses, but you're not being charged any extra.

    There are plenty of other real reasons for nor having a smart meter.
    He who laughs last probably didn't get the joke.
