Apologies, I had forgotten to check back here.
A few days later, it became fully active and accepting orders.
I was in contract with BT paying £32 PM for what was boarding unusable service, but still met their 0.5mb minimum. I then called them up to see what offers they had for Fibre etc.
Ended up getting Fibre Max or something, MIN guarantee of 35mb I believe, for only £1 extra!
Router coming Friday, activation on Monday, oh how my life will be almost completed.
