Will Modem Mode Improve PS4 latency?

So there has been a high/peak time utilisation issue in my area coming up to a year now since it first started with the next "Review" (push back) date on January 18th and I have heard people say modem mode can help reduce latency when it comes to online gaming and to buy a separate router etc. I'm on a wired connection via power line adapters so would modem mode help with the latency even if there is high utilisation or will it make no difference? Thanks.

if you have high utiliation its not going to help as the lag is not at the modem its on the network

high utiliation on a well setup network doing QoS should not impacted your gaming latency.

Only ever had my PS4 on modem mode, NEVER had a problem.

Running on 200Mb VM service with SH2 AC in Modem Mode, with a ASUS RT-N66U router. With this setup I get Fantastic WIRED and WIRELESS Signals in my home. I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech.
My advice is at your own risk.
