Plusnet is not a "Managed install". The engineer is not required to install the user's router, merely check the modem connection to the cabinet.
As the connection of the Technicolor router to the Plusnet routers using TR-069 is expected to take 15 minutes, the engineer isn't likely to hang around.
There's nothing to stop you using your own at "Minute 1". Test the PN one some other time, after a few days running, if you do, so you know you have a working standby if yours fails later.
