Because at the moment you only get given a modem that is compatible with the 50Mbit service when you order the 50Mbit service
Any other modem for any other broadband service won't work with 50Mbit

Reality states you dont need a Virgin Engineer to come out, as my install was just a modem switch over and nothing was done in the cab at all. To me or at least in some instances I think its just a money making scheme.
The engineer left saying there was some system issue and my details had not been passed through, I actually spent most of that day being passed from dept to dept in order to sort out my own 50mbit install so in theory they should be paying me to fix my own issues. (Just for the record I had to register my own new 50mbit mac addy as the engineer didnt!)
Anyway that was just my 2 penith worth.
But to tow the line yes you will need a engineer to swap your modem out.

Ah, I didn't even realise there was a charge. When I looked through the stuff earlier I didn't notice it. You wouldn't happen to remember what the charge was, would you?
