    I am seriously considering getting a new home that is outside a city, and i can only get "rural internet" that advertises up to 25mb/s download and since i am only a few miles from a city i don't think it will be difficult to get the advertised speed. However, i have 2 sons that game constantly on Xbox 360, the wife watches netflix and i game when i am home on my PC.

    I been doing research that says gaming will be just fine as long as i get a good ping, and streaming under 4k (Which we never do 4k) will be just fine all together. I understand that download speeds will suffer for torrents so i would do that late at night to avoid using all the bandwidth.

    I don't know much about networking so any help would be appreciated.

    You should be fine. I had 3 people streaming movies/shows at the same time while I was playing Smite in my old condo at 10 mb. Never had any stutters or problems. I'd double check to make sure the company you're going with doesn't have a bandwidth limit though, that's the cancer I'd be concerned about.
