Post WiFi

I'm on a 6o meg plan. I get a consistent 65 megs or higher on my Roku speed test and a minimum of 25 megs when doing the Netflix interface speed test using wifi. I have an Asus router, which independent reviews have shown, can still produce a significant amount of throughput even at distances over 100 feet using the 5ghz band.

YouTube videos labeled 4K aren't always. Using their debug display I've seen over 40 Mbps with true 4K material. Same with HDR. Just because the title says HDR doesn't mean it is.

Were those 40 Mbps videos h264? They've stopped using h264 for 4K and are exclusively VP9.

Couldn't say. It wasn't recently, so can't remember. I thought is was VP9, but version 1, not version 2 like they are using now for HDR.
