That's the speed that you're currently transferring data at.  It 
should be much the same as the ``show physical'' output.

The 115200 is the DTR speed.  Unfortunately, ppp doesn't know what 
your link speed is - you can get the initial speed from your ppp logs 
if you AT your modem correctly (so that it shows the link speed on 
connect rather than the DTR speed) and do chat/connect logging.
