Download speed big change

Recently discovered speedtest.net. Download speed has been 25-30 for several days, today is up to 220. Why the change? Is modem going bad? How do I keep it at 200 area? Alao, I recently shopped for new modem. Best Buy recommended ArrisAC 1750. But i notice it is docsis 3.0. Should I get a modem with docsis 3.1?

See if this is any help; you need to know which modems will work with your Internet.

Is this with a WiFi connection ? If so, for a test, does a computer hardwired directly to the router / gateway device with an ethernet cable have the same problem ?
