If you already own a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem that supports your Internet plan’s top rates, don’t buy a more powerful (and more expensive) cable modem for the sake of future-proofing.

The jump from 1.0 to 2.0 made upstream traffic faster, but modems still used a single channel for each direction, topping out at 43 megabits per second down and 31 Mbps up.
DOCSIS 3.0 allows modems to bond multiple channels into a single data stream, giving you 38 Mbps per channel.
