Agreed, I'm not aware of them stopping desktop survey quotes. From what I understand it's just new actual surveys which are currently stopped (e.g. if you haven't paid for an actual survey then you'll have to wait an undetermined amount of time before you can pay for an actual survey to be done). If you've already paid for an actual survey then that's fine and the order will still continue as standard.
The good thing about getting an actual survey done is that it updates Openreach's records for your area which may subsequently prioritise that area in a future rollout of FTTP (assuming you don't go ahead and pay for the installation), or even nearby areas around it.
