Shaw techs are not available to come to my house until Sunday January 
6th!My download speeds are around 1.5 Mbps.

Is it possible the modem has gone? Should I just demand a new modem to 
see if it fixes the problem?

 From ifconfig eth0 (my nic to a Shaw Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 gateway modem)...

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:4B:2E:96:32
           inet addr:  Bcast: Mask:
           inet6 addr: fe80::210:4bff:fe2e:9632/64 Scope:Link

           Interrupt:19 Base address:0x20c0

In particular -> errors:10935 dropped:0 overruns:14571 frame:10935

Is this just a major node congestion problem or a faulty modem?
