Right I"m borderline, and I’m paying EXTRA for that 300Mbps, which will only barely allow me to do 4k streaming… The next package down (nothing in between) they offer is 60Mbps, which means I can’t support a single 4k stream, and even if it gets downgraded to 60Mbps that means my downstream is 100% capped off.
Half the neighborhood I’m in is paying for AT&T Uverse, which maxes out at 18Mbps down because of the distance to the node. My last house I had no choice but choosing the 18/2 package because the house was never hooked up for coax.
Comcast in other parts of Orlando offer 3 mainstream packages, 10Mbps, 25Mbps, 75Mbps., and 150Mbps. Only the latter can support 4k streaming without utilizing the entirety of your download bandwidth.
So yes, 70Mbps is a lot for normal consumers.
