The difference is in the code... There is no change log that I have seen so the only way to find out is to try (every area seems to be different so looking at the code wouldn't really provide you with any answers anyways). JB modems generally offer the best data speed but they can only be used on TouchWiz Jelly Bean (4.1.2)

Another question could modems effect battery as in each one would search for data signal differently?

Poor signal = poor battery life.

If the phone is constantly searching for signal, it will affect battery life. This is why I leave wifi always on and connected if possible wherever I am. This only affects data polling of course but it still helps.

There aren't really many choices for Jellybean modems but if you are running a rom that lets you use ICS or GB modems, there are a ton of choices and it is trial and error what will work best for you in your area.

GB27 has always been way better than anything else for me, that's why I stay on TouchWiz
