When would a mini GBIC port be useful on my HP ProCurve 1800-24G switch?

Hi
I several HP ProCurve 1800-24G switches in my comms room that are connected to each by x2 trunked network cables running at 10/1000 - so the total bandwidth I guess is 2 gigabit.

Would teaming more together or using the mini GBIC ports be useful? I have no knowledge of fiber and how it works. My company shifts large amounts of data around continuosly.

Thanks

It has two dual-personality mini-GBIC slots ;
that is each of these two dual-personality can either work with fiber OR with cu.
So no extra capacity only flexibility.

Teaming of more links (bigger trunk) will expand inter-switch  bandwidth at the cost of accessports.
Not exactly double the bandwidth with double-ports as the process is managed by MAC-adresses.
