    Depends on supplier and internal processes, wouldn't suspect more than two weeks.
    Thank you all for helping me make my day by saving money!

    It takes up to 2 weeks, usually within a few days. Unless there's a problem...

    Had a meter swap with First Utility.

    3 days after the switch, the correct start reading for the new meter appeared in my online account, don't know when it appeared on the database, though.
