Premier VPN speed and Plusnet Unlimited questions

OK, I read though the FAQs and still have some questions.
Q1. I'm currently on BB Premier Option 1 - I've been comparing the traffic management with the unlimited product. VPN is not listed as one of the types subject to traffic management for BB Premier Option 1 - Is that correct?

FAQ 13. Does Plusnet Unlimited come with domain hosting?
No, hosting isn't included. If you need to host a domain you might want to take a look at Just The Name.
If you're already a customer with hosted domains and move to Plusnet Unlimited you won't lose these.

Q2. Does the statement "you won't lose these" mean "you won't lose the domains" or does it mean "You will continue to host my domains"?
Q3. I currently have "Max Premium". Is this affected if I switch to Unlimited?

For a good side by side comparison see this http://www.kitz.co.uk/isp/plusnet_shaping2.htm
I've switched from Prem 1 to unlimited this month and so far have had no issues.
my VPN to the office is working fine. It does not have any restrictions on Prem1, the restriction on unlimited is the max bandwidth not the priority.
As you are upgrading you can keep your value add items such as web hosting and VoIP.
Max premium is fine on unlimited I have that too.

Also as you are an existing customer it's only a 12month contract if you don't take the router.

There weren't any rate limits applied on Broadband Premier for VPN, however this is rate limited to 2Mbps on Unlimited.  That should be more than enough though.

It means both.  You'll keep the existing services you had on Broadband Premier.

You'll continue to receive this.
