Questions about the 'Liberty' plans and routers

I am forced into considering an upgrade to account. My usage has tripled in the last 3 or 4 months without an explanation for it. I have tried the new eSVT program to get some more info on where and when my Gigs are going, the only problem is that with my older modem (RM 4000 series) I cannot get the type of usage information that I am looking for.
Question 1: I am shown 9 new Liberty programs available, the Boost and WiFi uses the 802.11 modem, is there a different modem for the basic Liberty plan or do I still use my existing modem? Question 2: Right now I have a Netgear WNDR3400v3 router which covers my house and two Netgear R6300v2 routers fed by Ethernet cable to cover outbuildings on my property. Will I run into a problem running my existing LAN with either of the newer modems (assuming the answer to question 1 is 'yes' and I would have some sort of new modem of which I do not know what the model # is). Thank you

Hello Jim

The largest difference is if you do a plan with a Speedboost option, you will have a new modem sent to you (wifi built-in, has additional fee)

If you are just simply going to a regular Liberty plan from like a Evolution or Classic plan, you won't have to change your modem and can still use your set-up
