Conclusion

With DSL 25k you can watch youtube videos in 4k. Maybe you have to wait just 20-30 seconds to get the optimal resolution.

If you have a bad try you stuck at 2560 x 1440 px and dont get even 4k.

Be in mind that i use nearly 100 % of my bandwidth. If you have other devices in your home network it can become a serious problem.

With DSL 50k i think you should have instantly 4k on youtube.
