Way more than sufficient. For reference, Netflix recommends 25mb for 4k content, whereas Amazon recommends 15mb. And while Netflix recommends 25, I believe actual output is in the 15-16 range. I've read some Apple TV actual output reaches around 25mb.
So yes, for now 100mb channel seems sufficient. And I would also hard wire. I do the same. Internet dumps at main TV and all those devices are hard wired. Other TVs connect wirelessly.
Keep in mind, regardless of channel size, the ultimate limitation will be the users internet speed and any data caps. If I have 10 devices all requiring 25mb that is a combined 250mb download stream.
I'm currently on a 300mb cable feed, and prior to this was on a gigabit DSL feed. While gigabit had moments of greatness, you have to be hard wired to see max speeds and in my case it was very intermittent service (lots of repairs and service outages) so the 300mb cable service is actually more reliable and constant for me.
However, I have many friends who are < 100mb service and then that gets split amongst all their various devices.
