Anything faster than your internet connection

There are 2 factors here, internet connection speed and wireless network speed.

Your internet speed needs to be fast enough to keep up with streaming video on Youtube or whatever streaming sites you use.

Your wireless network needs to be fast enough to keep up with the bitrate of whatever video you're streaming. Most wireless routers will be fine as long as they're not too far from the Chromecast.

The laptop on wireless seems to stream videos as well as the Ethernet connected desktop.
We live rurally, slowish internet, would this internet speed be ok for using chromecast?
