But, at the time, is was as fast as you could get. My first telephone modem was 300 baud, for my Commodore 64.
AR is right, unless your modem and router are really lousy, you aren't going to see any difference replacing them. Your internet access speed is normally just a fraction of the speed the modem and router and network switches (if you have any) are capable of using.
You get different speeds with different ISP service. As Master Jedi Atomic Rooster assumed, I do have a high speed cable internet connection (with my cheap as dirt router.) Looking at the speed you "tested" at, I don't think you need to change anything.
