Don't know about "faster". Speed is relative to the connection, the processor and available memory. My experience with 3 G devices is limited to Cingular Blackjack here in the US.
Email is email is email and the messages are small enough that 3G really doesn't affect delivery or sending - unless there are huge attachments. Surfing might be a bit faster, but not sure it would be that noticeable.
Also, 3G eats battery power, especially if you are in a fringe area where the device is constantly searching and going in and out of 3G. Not a good enough trade off in my opinion. But you should test it out yourself.
