Download speeds less than promised on Arris SB6141

I got an email saying they increased the download speed on our account to 150. Speed test shows 38. I unplugged the modem; plugged it back in, no change. I got on Xfinity chat and 40 minutes later was told everything looked fine on their end and I would need to contact the modem manufacturer since I wasn't renting. Smiley Sad

 

I've looked in these forums and it seems this modem should deliver 150 down. So what could the problem be?

 

Here is some info on the modem:
