Modem Upgrade

I had my modem upgraded to a Docsis 3.0 today by a metrocast tech, and my upload seems to slacking a bit. Prior to the upgrade I was averaging about a 2.3-2.4 mbp/s up speed.

As seen above I am now averaging about 1.9 mbp/s. It's not really a huge deal, just a little strange seeing as it is an improved modem.

I'm using the same computer as before the upgrade, I'm plugged directly into the modem, anything that may be using bandwidth is disabled including my antivirus. Ive tried serveral different speedtest sites and nearby servers all of which seem to get around the same result and the modem has been reset several times.

Anyone know why this might be happening?

Could it be an issue with my modem only having 1 upstream channel? I've seen some of you other guys on the gamer package with 2-3 bonded upstream channels, but correct me if i'm wrong.
