You're missing a lot on today's internet if you're still using yesterday's internet service.
Some things just get old. And your modem is one of them. Phone lines were not designed to handle the Internet. Cable lines were!

Cable lines have much wider bandwidths than telephone lines so audio, video and data signals travel to and from a computer much faster.
