Estimated Bill wrong

I have reached out twice to get my account changed to reading my own meter as I am being over charged. I receive a bill saying actual meter read when I know it is not true as my box is not accessible. I have just been told by staff they are unable to update my bill with my reading when your website say’s differently. 
There are 2 people and no way it can be this much. I am being charged an estimate rate the same as people in front of us that use their aircon all day. 

I am over paying an extraordinary amount when I know we do not use it and get no help when I reach out.

Hi @Kris23 - if you have a smart meter your meter will be ready remotely, so the box does not need to be accessible. Perhaps you could post a photo of your meter so the community can help determine what type you have?

If they can't get it right change supplier there's plenty more out there.

Hi @Kris23 , this is a smart meter so it's read remotely - it doesn't require someone from your distributor to read it on-site. 

The value shown as "usage" on your AGL app is only the price for the electricity you have used - it doesn't include the daily supply charge which is included on the bill, and potentially other charges as well.
