SB6121 upgrade question - Time Warner Internet

#1
This question is about "SB6121 upgrade question", with Time Warner Cable internet and apps. I'm sure this has been covered to death already, but here we go:

I just switched from TWC Extreme internet (50/5) to Spectrum Internet which I believe is 100/10 in Dallas. I have the SB6121 owned and see that it is only recommended for the 50 mbps plans but I am getting up to 118/12 when speedtested on multiple sites and multiple devices (direct wired and wireless). Every now and then it seems to bottleneck and top out at 38/12.

My question is: would upgrading to the SB 6183 or SB6190 help alleviate the occasional bottlenecks when there is congestion/multiple devices running/etc? I know the 6121 has 4 channels and perhaps having the extra capacity would help things run more smoothly? When I'm getting 100+ is it just running at max and struggling to keep up? I normally have 2 laptops, 1 desktop, and 4 or 5 phones running at any given time with anything from online classes to facebook to factime to netflix all running at the same time in the evenings.
