I have 6Mbps and it suffices, although I do not do a lot of streaming that that I do do is good and clear. That speed would be the minimum that I would want. I think it would minimally meet your needs.

I would agree with Xhi, that gives you 3Mb/s each if you get the 6Mb/s package. Your husband's xbox use will likely impact on your browsing when he uses it but I'm sure you can work something out there. I average 3Mb/s and I can watch Youtube without waiting for it to buffer ahead.
Those prices are too high. I would look for another carrier. And I agree, 6mbps is a good compromise. At ATT I pay about $36 for that and in Germany at Telecom the equivalent of $20.
I use the starter package from Comcast. No online gaming but, the wife does a lot of streaming videos. Rarely a buffer, if it does she calls me from the other room where her computer is and thinks something is wrong. I would go with the starter package if within your means.
