Is it an upgrade from Netgear 6100D?

It doesn't seem to be. I would expect this would be best used in either a small apartment or as a band-aid backup router for most people. I'm not seeing the radio throughput on the Netgear, but that one does seem better in terms of wired networking (10/100 vs. 10/100/1000), the ability to use an LTE connection as the ISP, and MU-MIMO 2x2.

what you linked is an LTE gateway which provides internet over a wireless carrier in addition to a standard WAN (wired) port. But, as far as JUST the wireless functionality is concerned (removing failover/LTE from consideration) they are both AC1200 so would expect them to both behave similarly. I would give the Netgear an edge over all due to additional failover functionality and gigabit switch capabilities
