At 300m cable length, you should be getting 60Mbps and even with 600m, I would expect around 40Mbps or maybe a little less.
See my sig smile.
What is odd is the original estimate of 6Mbps downstream ... 2, 10 and 20 are the normal figures.
Typo - you mean upstream.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk
Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost. Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.0/13.9Mbps @ 600m.

Dodgy line!

My brother is 580m - you can see where the cable trenches are, even after 10 years, and his potential sync is around 61Mbps.

I dont know which direction the cabe goes from the cabinet. But at it longest should be 300m. Shortest 200m. Here it is on google maps.

According to that map it's either 350 or 400 metres.

A little more information about my line. A few years ago I had ISDN installed and i chose to have the box installed upstairs so the BT guy ran a cable around the outside of the house, through the wall, round the skirtings and over the door frame for the second line.

When I had ISDN uninstalled in preperation for ADSL the BT guy disabled the socket downstairs so ever since the only socket with a signal has been the one upstairs. Could this be causing problems on my line?

I also read that when fiber is installed its common practice to install a new cable from the pole, but the guy that installed infinity didnt do this.

That's drivel. There hasn't been a single case of that reported on these forums.

That's true! If pole fed.

It wouldn't be common practice even then though. It would be essential. To my mind the copper for the phone need not be affected, but might be.

Shows the overhead deployment, with the fibre tube and the telephone running along with it, i.e. changing existing drop is pretty much needed to get the new tube up, and the fibre through it.

The fibre lines can be spotted by the following two tubes leaving the manifold in
