VM use DHCP. Switch your Hub off overnight and see if you get a new IP in the morning.

I don't think VM will change it for  you as a request.

Also, if you switch to Modem Mode and supply your own router, you will get a new IP.

Re: IP change

VM won't change it for you and their WAN IP's are exceedingly sticky.

Re: IP change

As mentioned, VM Ips are what are known as "Sticky"

They do not change frequently, and there is no method of virgin media changing it manually for individual customers, unlike BT switching the modem off overnight will not usually change it.
