The last mile is the issue. Maybe I should have said that instead. Uverse is the worst. Charter has Fiber to the node but at least the cable from there to every house in my area is that ½" or thicker trunk line cable. That's got to have more bandwidth than what at&t can ever hope to provide.
Yeah it generally blows chunks, even in dense areas. Most places that are even a little bit rural are boned with tons of really old copper.
I'm one of the lucky few on "real" fios in which the last mile is fiber all the way to the side of the house, capable of multiple independent gigabit+ connections. Throw in a new ONT and (maybe) upgrade the router for your neighborhood and done.
The ONT part I'm not even sure what the hardware speed cap is, it might only need provisioning to go a lot faster (300+) and I have a GBe jack on it already.
So we drifted... I don't know anything at all about the OP's question but will watch this thread and see what I learn.
Pretty much OP should save time and money until buying an actual 4k set, since it might be a moot point by then
