depends on how many devices will be using the net at the same time. a single 1080p stream needs less than 5 mb/s. so 3 or 4 people streaming at the same time would need 20 mb/s or more. someone downloading a lot of stuff all the time would want even better speed.

you need to evaluate everyone that will be using the net and figure out how much you'll likely need at any one time. then get a bit more than that to be safe and account for slower speeds during peak hours. you can have 25 devices connected but if only 2 or 3 are working at one time, then that's all the speed you need right then....

assuming all 3 tv's are streaming at once and a 4th person is gaming at the same time would be a guess of about 50 mb/s. i'm going with suggested 10 mb/s per tv stream and 20 mb/s for game system. all are high estimates really but 50 mb/s is not exactly top of the speed range anyway. pretty much entry level.

so if you are looking at 70 mb/s anyway, then you should be good to go. of course if you need more speed, you can always upgrade your package down the road.

that depends on where you live. every area has different companies, plans, prices and reliability. best bet is to ask around neighbors and other locals and see who they use and how they feel about them. probably some local reviews you can read as well. in my area verizon fios is the way to go but that may not be available in your area.....
