Unless we all get gigabit speed internet with no data caps standard, there's only so much providers can do given practical bitrate limitations.
The streaming providers don't need to improve anything because their customers are mostly content with what they get now.

Improvements cost money and neither provider nor customer seem interested in spending anymore than they have to; streaming customers prefer cheap and convenient and that's what the providers deliver.
