blast! speed expectations

I signed up for Blast! tier internet and my cable modem config file is speedtierextreme2.  What download/upload bandwith should I be expecting in 2018 for the New York city area?  Currently getting around 190 Mbps on a dslreports speed test and I'm trying to determine if that's below/above average.  Thanks in advance.

With Blast speeds, you should see ~300/12 (down/up) max. What modem are you using?
