Hi Guys, I have express with the SB5100 modem. I'm planning on upgrading to the Extreme package. I want to keep my SB5100 that i bought. I know I've seen the specs that this modem can go up to 38mbps. What i want to know if i should look into getting an new D3 modem or stick with my reliable sb5100?
Will there be a big speed difference?
There could be as speedboost might get you 50mbps peaks or higher, and the modem would be the limiting factor. On the 12/0.5 profile I would often hit 30+mbps. On the 50/2 profile I get peaks as high as 83mbps.
