i've worked with a 300mbps connection, that is some serious speed, its for an enterprise level datacenter tho...
the speed difference is too small to measure, its on the millisecond or nanosecond scale
if you have high volumes of network traffic at all times of the day & night you would see some slowdown...
but if your network connection is mostly idle, there will be no visible difference
as a term clarification, you have a cable modem and a network switch
usually the term router has potential to trigger the thought to relate it as a wifi router
many times the wired router takes on the role of NAT and DHCP server, and that is when they are referred to as a router - operating at the IP layer. Whereas switches do not do any of that and operate only on the mac address layer.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"
