At the equator, the Earth spins at the speed of about 1000 miles per hour (1600 kilometers per hour).
At a circumference of 25,000 miles from the Equator, the Earth is constantly rotating. It takes 24 hours to rotate once, which is equal to about 1,000 mph. You can find more information here: http://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/ask_astro/answers/970401c.html
