Will you be with the same carrier? If so, speed really isn't an issue.
One thing to keep in mind is that speed on a cell device is dependent on many things, such as your connection, the processor in the device, and memory available, among other things. It is nothing at all like the speed you get on a laptop with DSL/Cable/T-1.
EDGE speeds on GSM networks (Cingular/T-Mobile) run from between 40-235 kbps with the average being 50-90 kbps, only a bit faster than dial-up. EV-DO on the CDMA networks (Sprint and Verizon) run from about 750 kbps to 1.2 mbps. 3G on GSM is said to be about 1-2 mbps, but it will be awhile before it gets built out to make it as available as EV-DO.
