    1. You have to start with British Gas (or the previous supplier) as they will be 'deemed supplier'. If you think they will refuse you a credit meter and you don't want to go on prepayment because you intend to change supplier, you could ask if they will accept a deposit.

    2. About 5 mins - you phone them up with the meter readings and they open an account for you.
    A kind word lasts a minute, a skelped erse is sair for a day.
