Hi Cevolution are these release dates US or Australian release dates ?
If Australian then I suggest now might be a good time for us to start a new sticky thread in this forum with just the future / upcoming 4K UHD movies for Australia in it. Separate from the general discussion of 4K UHD features and problems.
Any one else in agreement ?
On a separate note Iron man 1, 2 & 3 UHD are being released in Europe in April.

The 12Mbps down would be fine for receiving Full HD streaming which would be sufficient for most households I'd imagine. I'd think it would be a pretty solid 12Mbps too, in most locations but we'd need a fair number of reports to confirm that.
For UHD enthusiasts like me, it would need to be no less than the 25 down (with 5 up) plan. Given my close proximity to likely locations for nodes, that would likely be an overall improvement on my current Optus HFC connection which gives around 25Mbps down (dipping sometimes to around 17Mbps), but only around 1.5Mbps up.
I upload videos and photos to Google Drive for viewing by family overseas. It takes ages to do that with my current cable connection (around 1.5Mbps upload rate).
Another aspect is conducting Skype and other video conferences with good video quality. A bit of reserve in the upload capacity might not go astray, though I have to admit I haven't tested that out all that much to date. (It can be hard to assess whether the bottleneck is with your own ISP, the ISP of the other participant(s), or with national or international internet routing.)
