Hi Matthew David,
The amount of users on one Starlink system can vary depending on a few factors. We run a Gen 1 system on the residential package here in Central Alberta, Canada and average around 80mbps download and 10mbps upload consistently. If you were to run a video streaming service such as Netflix you could expect to get decent streaming quality on one device with 5-10mbps of download allotment. Considering that you could get upwards of 8 devices streaming movies at the same time. Often though there are other things using bandwidth in the background of any of your Wi-Fi connected devices and that can significantly affect your ability to run all your devices at the same time (as far as streaming goes). You also have to take into account distance from your router, wireless or hardwired devices, age of the device itself, time of day, etc.
To give some idea though we (StarlinkCommunityForums) have run in excess of 10 devices at the same time running a combo of 4k video, general web surfing, live video games, and even a Skype call (which relies more on upload). We did this stress test for about 4 hours and it was able to take care of it all without a hiccup (also has been running many devices since Starlink was in Beta), and like I said that was with approx 80mbps down and 10mbps up. Overall Starlink for us has been a fairly robust system and has proven to be reliable and pretty quick for our needs.
