What is a realistically good Mbps speed?

I have Xfinity blast and I am trying to understand what speed I should be getting (realistically), so I can determine if what I am actually getting is good/bad, etc.

Do you know what speed tier you are paying for?  Check your latest statement.

This is unofficial but it gives you an example:

Blast in the Northeast is 250/10 (down/up) Via ethernet, you should see ~300/12

Blast in the Central region is 100/10. Via ethernet, you should see ~120/12
