Signal strength and download speed

Is there a way to correlate the signal strength on the phone and the download rate.  For example, all bars=100% of download speed and 1 bar = 25%?    I know that there are a lot of other factors that determine download speed and it would still be a really general guess, but I was just wondering if I could get some sort of idea so I know that when my users have one bar it is going to take 4 times longer (generally)  vs. with all bars generally it is going to be at the top speed the connection provides (i.e. - CDMA vs GSM speed for that provider that is the typical download speed).
