Default when moving to fibre...

Will the old wired BB be turned off?

My Fibre is to be activated on Friday

but I've yet to receive the router

could be without a connection for the whole weekend

(Yes, booking it on a Friday was a silly idea)

If it's FTTC your copper pair will be rerouted through the nearby green
cabinet to the DSLAM for the FTTC service. If your existing router will
workk with VDSL it might reboot itself and carry on.

But given that you've asked for a new router then probably your existing
router does not support VDSL.

If its FTTP then probably the calls will be rerouted to the VoIP service
supported by the new router you've asked for. The old copper-based ADSL
service may still be active, in that your old router will say on Friday
that it has sync, and the authentication server might still respond to
your login - but without knowing the exact details I'm only guessing

It might be prudent to buy a suitable router from a local shop - having
a spare can't hurt.
