Could fellow users please share their views on whether a 10Mbps uncapped fibre service would be sufficient for Netflix (HD) without buffering?

Netflix states, "To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have an HD plan, then set your video quality setting to Auto or High. Titles will play in HD as long as you have a connection speed of 5.0 megabits per second or faster." Is this indeed the case?

More than sufficient.

Even a 4K stream in reality only needs a 20MB line.

I have 10 mbps, so that if you have more than one person streaming or when Telkom drops to around 4 to 5 mbps in the evenings on a 10 mbps line and their excuse is that it is a "best effort service "
