The download is over 5GB so you will need a reasonable speed to complete the download, and then you will have to update to 10.10.2 so yes you will need the 'net after installing, and for future updates.

thanks man. downloading the installer now.

Having internet after i've installed it wasnt the issue, it was incase my wifi stopped halfway through the install - would things mess up ? but it's looking like i only need the inernet for downloading the installer and not actually for the process of installing Yosemite

How long does it take to install by the way? or does that depend on how much of my HDD is filled up ?

Fifteen minutes or so and how full is your hard drive? Remember at least 20% free space of the drive's total capacity otherwise slow downs become the order of the day.

Before installing, you may want to create a bootable flash drive in case there are problems, or you need to reinstall, or have other Macs.A forum search will yield instructions.
