Docsis 3 isn't required for fast cable speeds. In my local area it's required for the 20 Mb package from Suddenlink. However, the Docsis 2.0 Linksys I'm using is running right around there due to refusing the policy push from the cable provider.

3.0 is technically more future proof, but it's unnecessary, depending on your internet package.

Check out this link. It will help you understand more about Docsis in a crash-course sort of way, as well as show you the differences (in table form) between the revisions. That should help sort out any confusion.
