What now for the Portsmouth line?

At the time of the franchise process there were two eye catching promises made to the Portsmouth to London commuters:  1. Faster journey times and 2. End of 3+2 seating on the "fast" trains.  What we have seen so far is more, not fewer peak services with 450s and, by adding a Godalming stop to the faster trains the journey times have further increased to something close to 10 minutes longer than they were under BR when I started to commute regularly.  Any plans to deliver on the promises made?
