Are you talking speed plans or providers? Speed wise I recommend at least 10Mbps down as for providers YMMV but most all providers work well tho you may have to tweak your network a bit

Unless you're getting 4K material (Roku 4 or one of the new models coming). Then I would suggest at minimum 25 Mbps. Netlfix tops out around 16 Mbps for 4K, and I think Amazon is about the same. However, I've seen over 40 Mbps streaming 4K from YouTube, according to their on screen display. Since I have 50 Mbps, I don't know if that was the highest they go, or if I was being capped by my connection speed.
in any event, YouTube can exceed 20 Mbps even with 1080 material, so more speed is always better

I have 3.5Mbs cable internet and 98% of all channels work without buffering. Netflix I know displays at 1080p and loads fast. Same with Amazon, roku, pluto, tubi, etc. At my router I limit the roku to 3.2Mbs just to make sure Internet browsing and youtube still work fine on 2 or three computers. If you want to stream high quality to 3 or 4 tvs then you need more. The only reason to have more is if you torrent and want it fast, and for those horrible Windows 10 updates. If you have a choice in bandwidth, start small, especially if you can upgrade with a phone call.
