Yes I would recommend the arris sb8200..but does not do voice telephone if you have that from your provider.
I can also recommend the Arris SB8200. I recently upgraded from a 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 modem to the SB8200 which is 32x8 DOCSIS 3.1. I have a 150Mbps service plan which doesn't need DOCSIS 3.1, but have still seen some performance improvement. I think my bufferbloat scores improved also. I just ran the bufferbloat test linked above, and the dslreports test, and got an A on both.

I thought the general recommendation for the R7800 was to leave QoS disabled. Is that incorrect?
I don't know about 'general recommendation', but when my R7800 was my firewall/router on 200/30GB cable internet,
I always had QoS disabled, i never used it, and I never had issues. With multiple users, multiple streaming TV/devices/etc.
and a good number of IoT switches/plugs. Always had over 50 clients connected to it, never had issue.
(Thank you Voxel) As always YMMV.

Do you notice any difference? It should've made a huge difference to some things.
YES.
- The connection seems faster overall
- Content off pages like Facebook/Amazon/Twitter load much fast, more complete ( used to have to wait for content to load)
- Mobil uploads are much faster, used to be a delay.
- I have not confirmed it - but I am sure the kids are all much happier with the lower latency in their video games.

So the conclusion then is that a faster connection might not have been what you needed.
Glad to hear it was something that was relatively easy, albeit not free to fix.
