ORBI HELP

Hey all I've had the CBR40 cable modem router for just over a year now and I got my ISP Spectrum to upgrade my 

service to the 400Mps plan but they're saying that my Orbi only supports up to 120Mps so what's the deal? Do I have to upgrade my 

Orbi now and what's a comparable model? Spectrum's sending out their faster cable modem but I like the features of the Orbi and would rather stick with that and I'm sure I don't want to drop another like $300 on a new cable modem router. Help please?

Ah no, the CBR40 supports up to 1.4Gb on the down, however normal speeds should be around 900Mpbs since the LAN ports only support 1000Mpbs. 

 

When I had mine online a few years back I had a 1Gb/50Mbs service and I was getting near 900Mpbs+- on the down.
