Default Cable modem question


i have an old 3Com shark fin design cable modem
and according to the specs it
allows user data of up to 38 mbps

i just upgraded with road runner to suposedly get 10mbps a second and they are telling me i have to use one of their modems to get the true speed.

Is this really true?

i have a hard time believing any of that.

i go to Different speed tests sites and one site show me with blazing speeds and another shows me with only 3mbps comapared to a 8mbps like ij slow as a turtle.
Also i have a Linksys router.

can that be adjusted as well to get faster speed

This site shows me at full throttle way past the bar


How do i really know how fast i am uploading
and downloading since i do not know
how many people visit these sites at once

Thank You
The journey is better then the destination
