      Unfortunately the 40/10 package which you are on is capped at that speed.

      Could you navigate to the BT Infinity site and post the estimated speed results that provides for your address?

      Fibre Optic Broadband – Infinity Superfast fibre packages – BT.com

      From there we can give you a better guess.

      I know I'm capped at 40mb I was just wondering by my stats how close I would get to the 80mb to work out if it's worth the upgrade

      You won't see those stats.

      The only way to know would be if the BTO Engineer told you what the line was actually capable of, but sine he/she won't be visiting your property, you won't be told.

      Another wat would be to visit the BT Infinity site and see what the estimate from there is. I should point out though that this will vary according to how busy your fibre cabinet is and the line quality. In my case the estimate was around 62mb from BT and I have been lucky as I get the full 80/20 connection speed.
