I have the same feeling you have. I'm currently staying in a hospital using its wifi which maxes out at .7 to 1mbps, and the quality on a Slingbox 350 is actually quite impressive. When I stream using my tethered LTE connection (about 3-6mbps). The quality is absolutely superb. If it weren't for the 5gb unlimited speed throttle, I would always use the LTE. One can run through that 5gb fairly fast when streaming video! I would like to think that TiVo can match Slingbox's quality, but at this point, I have my doubts.
