Re: modem

That would depend on what packages are available in your area.  I use an Arris SB8200.  I am on the 200Mbps blast package.  The SB8200 supports DOCSIS 3.1, which may not be avaialble in your area yet, but it would be wise to consider buying a modem that supports DOCSIS 3.1.  The 8200 is capable of speeds up to 1.2 Gbps download speeds.  It is a future proof investment.  When DOCSIS 3.1 is available in my area, or faster speeds become avaialable, I am ready for them with this modem.
