Listed below are links to weblogs that reference iPhone 3Gs tethering speed test:
The speed estimates were derived from SpeedTest.net. According to their servers, they estimated that the closest test server was in Toronto, ON. I am physically situated in Saskatoon, SK. Each test was a one-off, although doing multiple tests per server for an average would have been better.

Hi Richard, Similar results from downtown Toronto, generally about 1.2Mb/s – far from the advertised speed of course.

Rogers Portable Internet (Inukshuk network) via a wifi router after the plug in wimax modem (4/5 bars lit for signal strength) is faster than a laptop tethered to the Iphone, perhaps not quite as fast as the iphone itself . . .

Tethered via bluetooth from Linux iPhone 4 on Vodafone in New Zealand, at the New Zealand Police College- .37Mbs down, .11Mbs up, but poor reception here, only two bars, often down to one depending on the weather 8). Will retry later when showing full strength
