AGL Smart Meter Install Still Hasn't Occurred

So in May 2016 I got a letter stating that installers will be in my area from July 2016 to upgrade my meter to one that supports net metering. The letter then goes on to state that on 1 Jan 2017 (when the 60c feed in tariff ends) I will be automatically switch over to net metering. I need do nothing.


It's now Dec 2016 and the meter has not yet been upgraded (*as far as I can tell*). What happens if 1 Jan 2017 rolls around and the meter still hasn't been upgraded? I don't wan't gross metering at 6.1c per kW/h! I can barely cover my power bills as they currently are!!
