My plan is setup for 300Mbps which I was getting late last week. Lately i’ve been getting 5-16Mbps on some days and 150-200Mbps other days. I currently have the older XB3 tower modem... should I upgrade to the newer XB6 smaller modem? Would that even help the inconsistency?
You *can* upgrade if you really want, but the XB3 is perfectly fine for your speed tier.
