It's probably hard to generalize about this. Your best bet is to ask them directly what you can expect, and also to do a bit of googling to see if customers are complaining. That way you can narrow down a list of cloud providers to the ones that deliver on what they promise in terms of upload and download speeds.

You might find this useful.  It's not a comprehensive test, but it includes quite a few cloud services.  The numbers seem awfully low though.
