    3G is just a short name for a wide variety of technologies. You're sort of asking how fast a V6 engine is.

    It's called 3G because it's the 3rd generation of wide area networks.

    My phone flashes 3.5G whenever I'm connected to AT&T net, so I am assuming that's HSDPA? Either way it's still not that fast.

    of course, it's mobile broadband .. the fastest by now is 4G, but I'm sure it's not available everywhere yet.

    the speed.. I think 3G is 2Mbps and hsdpa 7.2Mbps in most modems.. cmiiw
