We dont have the opportunity to pay monthly, we read our meter, submit the reading and get a bill that has the latest payment date on, so we just set that date into the bank account and it is paid on that day.
We have recently had new meters installed that are supposed to read your usage and send the details to the company
there are thousands of us where it is not working, so back to square one
