depends on the source of the material. for example, if your download speed is 100Kbps, and the source only has a download speed of say 50Kbps, then, no, it won't improve the stream, as it is already running at full speed.

if the source has a higher download speed, and you upgrade, then you will get a better video stream

in theory may i add here......
