No your speeds are your speeds regardless of the modem.
What speed are you subscribed to?
Is a faster speed available at your address when checking online?
Which gateway do you have?
Device(s) on wireless or ethernet connection?
While a different device may improve your in home devices talking to each other, your best speed to your address will not be improved... if your best speed is (example) internet 5 and your receiving 3 on a wireless connection... it is about what to be expected depending on your device(s), distance, objects signal has to pass through, competing wifi networks, etc.
Please answer the above questions, may be able to offer some points to consider.
I will find that out what speed I'm paying for conpaired to what I'm getting in the house.
I know in like 1000 yards from the so called dsl junction box. So frustrated. Cant see paying 500+ a month for ATT to put in personal fiber Optics. Thks, J

Always do speed test through a wire Ethernet connection. You can check your wifi speed against that to see how much you're loosing through your wifi connection.
