VM don't release firm dates for upgrades. A sure sign that they are on the way is the cabinet upgrades, which involves swapping out all the cabinet equipment (amps, tap blocks & splitters) with kit that is DOCSIS 3.1 capable. This upgrade takes the network down for 6 to 8 hours & is usually accompanied by a letter through the door a few days prior. If you have had the upgrade, then the new speeds are pretty imminent.
