The order has gone in and I am very happy
The survey team consisted of three vans with two people each, and they were pulling up duct covers down the street all day, from before 9.30am until after 4pm. Definitely would have cost Openreach more than £250.
I asked the lead surveyor where the fibre aggregation node was, and he indicated a road junction about 600m walking distance away. Under the old pricing scheme I was in Band G (1500-2000m radial); so either I'm benefitting from a recently-installed FAN, or the previous system had old data in it. In any case, the new system has definitely worked for me.
