When I watch a 1080p HD movie stream it studders,stop,audio not in sync,etc. I tested my download speed at 28MBPS. Should that be enough to stream 1080p HD?
Your internet speed isn't the only consideration. You need the speed of the server that hosts the file and all points in between to handle the speed.
Your download speed can be 100Mb/s, but that wont help if the server only has an upload speed of 2Mb/s.

Speaking technically a raw Blu-Ray might be 40Mb/s.
A typical high quality 1080p reencode might be 10Mb/s.
A typical low quality 1080p reencode might be 4Mb/s.
