Let's see what VM have to say. Since the original "fix date" was 11 Feb, it's probable that's still showing on the system (as far as I can tell, CS and forum staff can't see any "history" of dates, not whether there's any work actually programmed). I suspect that come Friday, the fix date will mysteriously have advanced a couple of weeks or a month.
In some areas VM do indeed undertake work to rejig the local networks to balance loads and eliminate over-utilisation. But sometimes/often that's either not possible, or judged uneconomic if there's a need to spend money on more equipment. And sadly VM have a major problem with being transparent about this, so there's no way of knowing if a fix date is actually backed by an actual plan of action and programme of works.
In all honesty your best course of action would have been to have bailed out in your cooling off period, that's now gone, so you either bank on the problem being Covid related, and sit it out, hoping it resolves in the next few months. Or you can raise a complaint asking to be released from contract without penalty due to the over-utilisation.
All of which will be irrelevant if VM fix this by Thursday........

If VM did carry out works to fix over-utilisation, then yes, the problem could disappear overnight. The company insist that all instances of over-utilisation are treated seriously, with a view to resolving them. But the track record, judging by the reports in this forum is that fix dates are missed about six-ten times more frequently than they are met, and that resolution times are measured in terms of blocks of many months, sometimes years.
But why take my word for it? Read these, all relating to the same customer trying to get an over-utilisation issues fixed. Read start to finish, in order (and weep):
Thanks for your post, I am sorry you're having this issue with your broadband services recently.
I have had a look at your services on my side and can see there is an area ticket open, which is regarding congestion on the line.
This is due to be fixed - 11 FEB 2021 10:00 - but please be aware this is just an estimate, it could change depending on what the engineers find. However, I am sure they will be working incredibly hard to get this fixed as soon as possible for you.
