Understand that data speed depends on a number of variables ranging from your phone itself to your specific location at the time of testing and several others...so just because one person gets a certain speed, doesn't mean you'll get that same speed (or be limited to that same speed).
In my specific case, right now...sitting in a parking lot in my cruiser with 3 bars of service, i'm looking at the following speeds on the 3G network (approx. 30 miles outside of Atlanta to the north):

Right now everyone has an AT&T iPhone (or some GSM network) and on AT&T the 3G, 3GS, and 4 should all get the same speeds. Those speeds are highly variable though depending on many factors. In other countries though with HSPA 7.2 you can get faster speeds with the 4 (I forget about the 3GS since I never had one).
Just did a test at my desk where the signal is fairly weak, 3 bars right now but can go lower.
DL = 1200kbps
UL = 400kbps
At my house I normally get around 3200/800 with full signal.

iphone 4 has HSUPA which means faster uploading.
Here's a link for more info. iPhone 4 upgrades to HSDPA and HSUPA can double 3G bandwidth speeds | ZDNet This pretty much equals my experience. I'm in same location as the writer.

Do you guys use an app to check the speed??? I am new to the iPhone world and came over to the "dark side" from the BlackBerry world as they put it. Is there somewhere to check it on the phone. BTW I love my iPhone4 and will never go back. Thanks
