Nexus 1in Toronto

Icon on top bar says 3G but how do I actually tell which network speed I am truly getting as an average transfer rate and what's the average transfer rate for 3G?

Just don't want to be put on an inferior connection when I am paying top $$$ for the monthly rate...

I believe the Nexus One supports up to 7.2mbps HSDPA (download), but realistically the highest you would end up seeing is around 3mbps. Easiest way would be to see if there's a Speedtest app in the Android Marketplace, or going to m.speedtest.net should work as well.

As the others stated though, based on your location and network load, your network speeds will vary. The cell carriers don't "put you on an inferior connection" as say, DSL/Cable providers do, which is why data rate plans are based on capacity (MB used), not speed.
