I expected 4K to hit internet speed harder... Nice! I've got moar bandwidth while watching some movie. No a bad idea getting an AirPort Extreme, instant internet boost.

Haha, that speed requirement will exclude pretty much 99.9% of all Australian home broadband connections!

Speak for yourself. I'm Canadian and stream 4K Netflix continuously. Most people in Canada have over 15Mbps, are you still using dial-up??? I run 150Mbps and so does everyone I know.
