Keep in mind that the 343 mbs speed is the max theoretical speed if no one else was sharing the channels the modem is on. Most ISPs won't activate a modem for a plan that is over 1/3-1/2 that max speed so the highest plan that they'd let you use this on is probably somewhere between 100 and 150mbs. Check your ISPs supported modem list to be sure and if you have a faster plan than that you'll definitely need a better modem. With that said the modem should pay for itself in months based on what ISPs are charging for renting a modem these days.

Really the biggest change is 3 bonds multiple channels together while 2 is single channel only. The bandwidth possible per channel is the same as is most other things just DOCSIS 3 modems start at 4 download and 4 upload channels and go up to 32x8 which makes them significantly faster than DOCSIS 2.
