Netflix in hotel rooms

I’m at the Mark Hopkins here in San Francisco cheerfully billing $ 15 per day in Internet fees to a consulting client (on top of $ 600/night for the room by the time California taxes are added in?). At 9 pm yesterday the Speakeasy Speed Test measured the connection at between 0.3 and 0.5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. This morning it is a symmetrical 25 Mbps. From this can we conclude that nearly every guest is trying to stream Netflix and similar? Or maybe that the hotel just has a single 25/25 line?
