If your modem is configured to report real outside speed, and not serial
link speed, wvdial will print that in the "connect" string:

--> Waiting for carrier.
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.

Then, if what you need is the real measured speed on usage, then run one
of those applets or gadgets displaying connection speed. I use gkrellm. In
text mode, you can use iptraf.
