So is this 4K movies?

If so, Netflix calls out 25 megabit for each user. That should cover the video use as well.

50+ Megabits.

Recommended Speed

50 MBps is the recommended speed for two video streamings occurring at the same time. That should be enough for the usage of Internet you have described. It is also important to manage time of use so speed is not impacted in any case.
