Anything's better than what you get with the provider.
First, what speeds are you subscribed for?
Second, find a cable modem that supports higher than that speed and is on the the compatibility list for your provider.
It should be plug and play replacing their cable modem, but you also might need to call them if it's not.

Are you looking for an all in one, or a modem and then a router? The reason I ask is I find there are much better options having a separate router rather than using a combo router/modem for cable.

But, here are some that worked well for me before.

As long as it work better than this one it doesn’t have to be an all in one
Shit, then get anything and it will be better :)

Seriously, get a modem rated for faster speed than you get and your speed will go up. I've always had good service with ARRIS modems, the Motorola ones will work to spec but the ARRIS ones are more reliable and are faster.

Make sure you have enough speed to handle streaming. You can also go into your router (depending on what you get) and do QoS for specific types of traffic.
