multiple routers

    Are two connected modems faster?

    My internet provider set up a Cisco DPQ3212 Docsis 3.0 cable modem connected to a Netgear N900 CG4500 BD Docsis 3.0 Dual Band modem router from the wall cable outlet. Why would I need two modems? The tech said it may be faster but I'm not convinced.
