That amount of work should not be needed for most FTTC ADSL installs.

The engineer's on-site work is usually just a case of disconnecting
the old router, switching face plates on the master socket, plugging
in a new ADSL modem (not router). Then you plug your own PPPoE router
into the ethernet socket of modem and set it up yourself.
