mini-GBIC port on HP switch

I have three HP ProCurve 1410-24G switches.  See attached image.

Would connecting the switches together using the mini-GBIC ports speed up the network?  

What type of cables do I need and do I need a transceiver for those ports?  

Will we notice an increase in the network speed with this connection type?  

Thanks,

Typically, if you use ports 23 - 24 as uplinks there should not be significant difference (most likely none) if you use copper or mini-GBIC since those are dual personality port. Backplane is the same for those ports.
Mini-GBIC is there if distance from switch to upstream or downstream device is greater than 100 meters. In that case you need to use Mini-GBIC since  you will have to use fiber-optic cables. UTP cables are designed for connections up to 100 meters.
