Speed 35mb or 75mb?

I am hoping to join Plusnet at the end of May, and not sure about which speed to select.

At the moment I have 76mb with Talktalk, but do I need it.

My usage is basically streaming tv and basic internet. With occasionally my wife using her tablet at the same time.

Do I really need 75mb.

99% of streaming is 1080p/720p video with the odd 4k from Youtube.

Thanks

ps see attachment for a 4K youtube test that I just did, from which I would infer that 40/10 would cope

Thanks Dave, that's a good intro to required speeds, so apart from the odd 4k sport 35mb should do the job, providing Plusnet maintain their advertised speed.
To be fair I can see very little difference in picture quality between 1080p and 4k.
