I received an offer recently from BT to go onto Infinity 2 therefore increasing my speed to a possible 76Mbps. Having looked into my profile on BT.com it appears that I'm already Infinity 2 and have been for some time; however I'm only getting 40Mbps which is slower than Infinity 1. Is it possible that I'm being billed for Infinity 2 and the Infinity set-up at the exchange is Infinity 1?
I've gone through the whole disconnecting everything and only having one device connected to check the speed, also I live on a new housing estate which one would assume the cables are in good condition and the BT green box is approx 400 - 500 yards away from my property.
Infinity is just one product. There are artificial caps to limit the speed to 52M for Infinity 1 and 76M for Infinity2 if the line is capable of higher speed. you will only get the speed your line is capable of up to the cap. If you are only getting 40M, that is all you will get regardless of Infinity1 or Infinity2. What leads you to believe you are paying for Infinity2?
I looked at my online bill and it says Infinity 2. I've been paying this since the line was installed.
In that case, I would suggest you drop to Infinity1 and save a bit of money.

Or post the information from the smart hub, using this link.
Then it should be possible to see if there is a possible fault condition.
Based on the information you have supplied so far, the advice given by licquorice is correct but just to check in case there is a problem other than being on the wrong Infinity package can you run this checker and post back a screen shot of the results.
