Nobody is getting special treatment, this is a blanket upgrade for all
VirginMedia cable customers.
I'll see an upgrade from 30MB to 60MB in October.

The SuperHub (modem and wifi router) can be put into 'modem only' mode.
This is how I have mine set so that I can use my own Cisco/Linksys wifi
router running dd-wrt.

Generally, when VM works, it's great. When it goes tits-up, their CS can
be a bit pants.
