How much speed is needed for which miner?
Is there a list or a calculater to see if the capacity is enough?
Actual we have a combined place with friends (5 x L3+ / 1 x D3 / 1 x R4 / 2 x IBelink).
Just want to know, if this could be too much for our actual speed. No exact date. Need to check when I am there again.
Please let me know, how we can calculate the needed capacity to choose, if we need a second connection to avoid reduction of profitability.

Internet speed doesn't affect your mining as far as know. Correct me if im wrong.
Your mining rig capabilty is which matters the most because this is where all process are done. Internet speed may not affect your mining. Base on my research, you can still mine even if your internet speed is 128 kbps to keep your mining going. Even on bandwidth,  mining doesnt really use huge bandwidth. But  your internet connection should be stable. You don't really need a very fast internet connection to mine. Fast internet connection will be worthless if it's not stable.

It is nice to know that internet speed is not a factor in mining.  So I guess even the cheapest subscription will do in so far as mining is concern.  Besides, I have not also find any article that internet speed can affect mining afterall.  So, this is just an eye opener here...

Yes speed matters for the mining because you have to be connected with internet 24*7. A simple speed can also work for mining there is no need of high speed internet, but if you are having a good hardware then it will be easy to you to do mining very effectively.

How much speed is needed for which miner?

Actual we have a combined place with friends (5 x L3+ / 1 x D3 / 1 x R4 / 2 x IBelink).
Just want to know, if this could be too much for our actual speed. No exact date. Need to check when I am there again.
Please let me know, how we can calculate the needed capacity to choose, if we need a second connection to avoid reduction of profitability.

your Internet speed doesn't really affect on mining but also you need to have internet all mining time .

mining depend on your hardware tools more than internet speed so if you have high quality hardware and low internet speed (less than 1 MB and high than 100 KB) and other have fast internet with low quality hardware you will gain more than him .

just use filters to keep internet stable more than 100 KB range (unstable internet causes problems)

Wow, you doesn't need 24/7 you only need internet to submit a solution and to take a new job

You do not need to have high speed internet connection you should have stable internet connection to continue function your mining site. The amount to mine is depending of hardware you have of course if you want fast and best result just buy the most powerful mining rigs and i can say that mining is one of the most expensive method of earning in bitcoin but this is one of the best source of bitcoin. And also just consider the electricity rate in your country because that is one of the problem to cut down your profit.

In the production of coins continued. The speed of the Internet connection does not matter. But very important is the price of electricity, the ability to connect to a reliable and powerful source of energy. The law of the country. Only mine by the looks attractive. This is actually a business that requires large investments and are difficult to predict. Think 100 times before investing money in this business.

Luckily, the internet speed is not being used as the "total calculation" in cryptocurrency mining. If not, then many of the miners from 3rd world countries won't be able to compete with 1st world countries.

From what I know, mining doesnt really require much speed. It requires a high amount of hashpower from your GPU.

Ok pro miners, what about hashrates? Why when you see your's speed on the zec pool and it's look like 1.8ksol from 1 rig, but when you see your speed in miner and it's 2.3 ksol? I think internet speed has the meaning and don't forget about ping from your's rig to pool.

My friend uses 4mbps internet connection for miners to mine bitcoins I think it is well enough for the miner, but we need the stable internet connection to receive our rewards continuously if our internet break in between the pools the miner has to reestablish the connection it is the waste of time and electricity.

it's right. although the speed of the internet decreases as long as it remains stable for example at 128kbps/ sec it still will not stop the existing mining, it must be known that the internet speed is not so significant, only. it would be better if we stay in a place that has a good internet kineksi, because this will facilitate / speed up in mining

I agree with opinion.
Internet speed doesn`t affect your mining, you can still mine even if your internet speed is 128 kbps, with 128 kbps your mining can still well run, what is needed in mining is VGA.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=969823.msg10587766#msg10587766
the more VGA you plug, the faster (performance) your mining.

My friends office has 3 rigs  gpu pc's  it is a dsl 3-4mb speed  very reliable been working for years no issues.

we had

 antminer s-1's
 antminer s-3's
 antminer s-7's
 antminer r-4's

now 3 gpu rigs.

We made some decent money at it.

Every country have different internet speed connection, in my research defend on site who are you mining or defend the server, important is what gpu you use to mining. More miner high speed internet but the gpu is low cuda core,  need to study more in online before invest to mining bitcoins to prevent loose a money.

After half a year of mining I conclude, that 5mbps of laggy connection is everything rigs need. Sometimes pages load a whole eternity, but miner works stable as should.

 Pool hashrate is calculated from shares found, which VARY.
 This is not an "internet speed" issue, though it might be an "internet LATENCY" issue if you have something like a Sat connection.

 Mining does NOT use a lot of data bandwidth - my junk Virgin Mobile 3G cell connection had more than enough bandwidth to handle several miners, even though it rarely saw much more than 200kbps on a GOOD night.

 Static IP doesn't matter unless you're running a pool you want folks to be able to use from outside your LAN.

I understand you, but why I have this big speed difference between flypool and my miners? I have 4g "mobile" internet now. What is the correct speed? On the pool or in the miner?

But what happens in a scenario where you install like 1000 miners on that 10 mbps network? Usually the download speed is way more than upload. Do you know which one matters when you have miners in 1000's? Thanks.

1000s of miners, you're probably going to need something higher end than dial-up equivilent - but I've never been anywhere near that level.

 I SUSPECT 10 Megabit would be enough - but would not be shocked if you need closer to 100.
 I believe you would likely need more upload speed, but that it would depend on how many shares you send back TO the pool vs how many new blocks it sends to each miner.

So we just need a stable connection, right ?
then what happens if when we sleep, there is an interruption on our connection or for example the unexpected is the power outages

whether it will greatly affect our hardware mining ?

That is why you need 2 internet connections. One for back up and the other as primary.

If you're running a big operation, a second connection as a backup makes sense.
Most ISPs are stable enough for small operations.

 Only time I lose Net at this point is if my POWER goes down, as the panel I connect into for my Net access runs from building power - so a backup connection doesn't help me much if at all.

 If your net or power goes down when you're asleep, it's not going to be a big deal if you set up your miners to start back up when power comes up.
 Usually that's a setting in the motherboard BIOS for a GPU rig, and it seems to be the default for most or all ASIC stand-alone miners.
