internet speed

Is there any way I can try the 5Mbps internet without a bunch of fees? My income is changing soon. My relative does streaming and Netflix on your 5Mbps plan.

Sling TV says I need:

Constant speed of 5.0 Megabits per second or more - Single stream of video content on a TV, PC, or Mac.

Constant speed of 25 Megabits per second or more - Recommended for households who maintain Internet use on multiple devices. 

 Amazon Prime:

Each streaming service encodes and serves the video slightly differently, which means that the recommended bandwidth for each varies. Netflix: 5.0 Mbps for HD.

Amazon Prime Instant video: 3.5 Mbps for HD.
