WiFi when available will almost always be faster then a cellular provided data connection. You can't really compare the 2. If given the choice, i would always choose WiFi. I use a 8700c on the Cingular network. I pay for the tether charge. In some spots, i will get 1 - 2 Mb/s up and down. In other spots, im lucky is i get 60 kbs up and down.
With WiFi, the only restriction is the amount of bandwidth the WiFi provider is allotting to the users. Most hotels i have stayed in over the last year it was usually around 3 -4 Mb/s
