As it is now, when watching the second season of "House of Cards" the picture quality is all over the place from 480p to 1080p. I don't think I have ever seen it in UHD.
the some of the Netlfix 4K stuff looks great but others don't look any better than 1080p and some worse (Hitch and Ghostbusters). I have a 150Mbps up 20Mbps down connection and 2160HD pops on immediately. If I were going to upgrade I would go to at least the Extreme on TW (I think 30Mbps) to stream 4K but then at that point I would convince myself to Upgrade to Ultimate for just a little more and get up to 100Mbps. I have an impulse control problem
Truthfully though, I wouldn't upgrade just for 4k Netlfix until there was a lot more available content. I upgrade because I download a ton of games and movies.
