Hello,

I'm thinking about putting some miners in a location where wired internet is not available, and Wifi is very unstable. Therefore i was thinking about buying a GPRS/UMTS/3G/4G modem/router and connect some miners to this.

My idea is to put 3 or 4 asics in a soundproof box, have it have a lithium battery backup (ey, its 12 volts, so why not?) and connect them to a GSM modem/router with 4 ethernet ports.
Now, in my country there are SIM providers with unlimited data for a fixed price, but price depends on your internet speed. So, therefore im looking if anyone knows the usage of data, and the bandwith needed for the miners like S9, L3+, etcetera.

Anyone got some good ideas about this?

Thanks!

You could probably run it off dial-up.

My 100KW datacenter is connecting roughly 70 machines to probably a dozen different pools on three different algorithms and uses less than 1mbit of traffic. Not sure of the exact numbers offhand, but it's pretty low.

Also make sure your soundproof box isn't heatproof or your miners will start to bake pretty fast. Also when considering your battery backup, recall that the miners will be pulling about 100 amps each.

What it will come down to on a cell connection is the latency. If your latency is good you can run plenty of miners off of the connection. Also, if you want to expand in the future you can setup a local proxy/dns/ntp server and reduce your bandwidth by a great amount.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

Thanks for the answers!  Smiley

So, im better off with a fast but not flat-free subscription, instead the other way around...?

expansion will not be... Its in a rented room not in use but need to pay rent (its backup) and is all-in. Rentee wont give discount for not using it, so i was planning to put 4 to 6 miners in it...  Wink

Math doesn't care what you believe.

As Fanatic26 stated, latency is what matters.  Do a ping to your chosen pool from each time of connection and pick whatever is fastest.  I wouldn't go with anything over 200ms, pings < 100ms should be fine.
