Most streaming services are going to utilize about 3-5Mbp/s for 1080p so the bandwidth shouldn't be any problem at all.

20Mbps should be enough for a couple of HD YouTube TV streams plus general network traffic. Almost all of the streaming services offer trial periods which should give you a good idea of service reliability.

We've generally got a couple of streams running all day--Sling, Hulu, Netflix, etc.--and the connection supports them all.

Are you streaming to your house or from your house ?

If streaming to your house (netflix/hulu amazon video) you should be fine.

Otherwise, if the speed is 20 Mbps in both directions, you should be fine too.
If it's less upstream and you use things like tablo tuner or a plex server, remote viewer may need to adjust their bandwidth.

It works great. We usually have several streams running. Much better than the old ATT DSL at 6Mbps.

Reliability has been pretty good over the last 3 years I've had it but lately there have been some random drops.
