The network controls what's available.

Docsis3 on a Docsis2 will only provide Docsis2 speeds and functions.

Does having a D3 modem on a congested cmts give you better speeds than
a D2 modem?
eg. the max is 10Mbps but a D2 modem gives 8Mbps at some times.
Will a D3 modem give 10Mbps when a D2 modem only gives 8 (ie. does a
D3 modem handle congestion better than a D2 modem when the cmts is D2)?
