To play HD Streams (Movies, TV Shows, Live TV) on your Fire TV or Firestick through Kodi or any other application, you need to have good internet speed so that you will get smooth playback. If you don’t know how to test internet speed on Fire TV or Firestick then follow the below guide.
If you plan on streaming content via Firestick apps we recommend using a VPN. A VPN will anonymize your online activity, protect you from spying ISPs, and allow you access to geo-blocked add-ons and content.
We personally use IPVanish VPN and highly recommend it. You can Sign Up For IPVanish VPN Here or if you want to know more about why to use a VPN with Kodi Click Here

Read Me: Trust me! you are not required to have a connection speed of 100 Mbps for butter streaming on FireStick. If you stream in 4K UHD, 20 Mbps is quite a nice speed.
