Not at our company no.
We still do a lot of R&D on vectoring so "copper" remains very important, but the "fiber program" that was started up some years ago keeps increasing momentum & streamlined and hundreds of millions of euro's are budgeted on this yearly. (approx 3 billion euro over 10 years)

But now some telcos are avoiding home visits and calls are being made to postpone non-essential work.

Sure that is (temporary) true.
These are unprecedented times with COVID-19 flying around the globe...

Telecom Italia is accelerating deployment of FTTC to underserved areas.

Maybe many random users are now blaming DSL when it is their employer's VPN that is not up to the task.

Why would some telcos need to visit the customer to install G.fast?
