I've been telling people that 100Mbit connection (not just from the
server, but available from your bandwidth provider) is the minimum for
new mirrors.  There are a few long-established mirrors with slightly
lower capabilities, but we've also added many with 1Gbit/sec or faster
connections.  You also need about 1TB of disk space to carry a full
mirror.

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/Mirroring for more
details on the process.
