Default Plusnet regrade from ADSL to FTTC

BTW the configurability of the plusnet router is awful and cannot be used
as a modem only, so I had to buy an Openreach modem to be able to use
my OpenWrt router.

So now you've got two boxes for internet access instead of one, using
two power sockets and extra wires. But you don't need to accept the
equipment your ISP provides; you can buy your own. There are several
modem/router/wi-fi boxes for domestic use that can manage ADSL or VDSL
and all in one box. You could equip yourself with one of these at any
time of your own choosing, and then if you ever decide to upgrade to
fibre you'll only need to change a few settings on the day that ADSL
stops working. You won't even need to get out of your chair.
