Ripple frequency noise filter

Switched-on

My ceiling fans pick up the ripple frequency Sent out into the grid. It causes the fans to make a buzzing sound, this happens at the same times every day / night.

I am told that as I have a smart meter installed, my provider should come out and install a mains filter to stop this from happening. 

I rang agl, they passed me around before transferring me to ausgrid who then hung up on me. 

Anyone have a success story?

HI - I was just wondering if you had any success in following this up?

I used to experience this in my old house with an old meter. I tell you what I'd prefer that sound to the near constant humming I get now in my new house with a smart meter. I'm lucky it doesn't wake me but when I am awake at night it's unsettling and the sense of stillness when it pauses for 5 mins is so calming...then it starts again 😔
