In my 13 years of access to broadband (6 of which was spent working at a
cable operator), you are the first person I've ever heard who asked
"should I switch from dialup?"  The only thing worse than dialup is no
access at all.

As for modems, they all should be built to the DOCSIS standard, so any
model should work.  I have always had ISP-supplied cable modems, which is
fine with me because no model ever lasted long enough to have made it
financially worth purchasing it separately.
