Self-install from the user perspective is identical to the first time they have ADSL installed. A short break whilst the cabinet connections are remade. (As opposed to a short break whilst the exchange connections are remade).
The faceplate is not
part of the Openreach network. The demarcation point remains the test socket of the NTE5.
With FTTC self-install the responsibility for optimising the home wiring moves from Openreach to the user - exactly as it has been for years with ADSLx.
However, as has been said, the OP is not yet able to order via the PlusNet system
a self-install. I expect it could be arranged via the some level or other of support, as it would require cancellation of the engineer home visit.
