router / broadband speed

Having a minor dispute with a work friend which we need help to solve.

My friend uses cable broadband at 20MB/s.

He recently upfraded his router from a 108MB/s model to a 300MB/s model.

He reckons he can now download files faster using p2p and also the quality of any videos watched over the internet has improved. One of the reason she thinks this is true is because he has an icon on his computer that tells him his computer and router are transmitting to each other at 300MB/s

My argument is that none of the above sentence can be true since his broadband connection has not changed, only the speed of his router.

Pls tell me if Iam right or wrong.

Your right mark, the bottleneck is the 20mbps download speed having a 108mb model or 300mb model won't do anything unless the broadband speed matches that :D
