Am I missing something as I really don't have a clue what any of this actually means or more to the point why I need to actually know any of it.
It's a thread about technical changes on VM's network, Ron. If the thread is of no interest to you, then we have hundreds of other threads to choose from. The thread is useful because it can highlight upcoming new services before they actually launch, or at least give us a flavour of what's going on behind the scenes on Virgin Media's network.
PS: I will delete your post and this post in the next 24 hours to keep the thread on topic.
