New router do I need 3.1 modem?

I just got the linksys EA 8100 that goes up to 2.6 Gbps. I have the Arris 1602 3.0 modem from Spectrum, do I need to exchange that to get the 3.1? Would the 3.1 work better for me? I have the ultra internet plan from Spectrum. Thanks

    Hello @debgram !

    While there are some areas were at 3.1 modem is required, I used the information in your community registration to check your area and the 3.1s are not required there. The Arris 1602 is still compatible with the Ultra speeds, but an upgraded modem would be required if you were to upgrade the internet plan.
