Modem switch

I recently bought a Scientific Atlanta dpc2100 modem off ebay to use in Columbus, GA with Knology. The seller sent me an email that said it's received several firmware updates since he stopped using it and he didn't want to sell me something that didn't work. I told him that Knology's site lists this modem in their compatible table and that I was comfortable to go ahead with the order. Am I going to regret that? I've been reading up on it, which I should've done first lol, and I was wondering if I will see a significant change in speed or connectivity from the Arris CM550a.

That's the same modem I'm using, provided by Knology. It's only DOCSIS 2.0, but it has no problem on the 12/2 package. I consistently get 15/2.1 with this modem.

Both the dpc2100 and cm550a are very good modems but with all the docsis 3 upgrades there getting long in the tooth.
