~80 WPM. It does depend on what I'm typing though. I have ~90 WPM when typing normal text but it'll drop to 80 when I type special characters (not including commas, periods, etc) and digits.

60-80 wpm. It gets higher with short words and code and lower with long words. I guess it is just practice, as I never need to type anything fast, apart from C++ code.

~100 WPM, with a really weird self-learned five-finger typing style.

I would imagine with code though, it's significantly faster since much of it is just typing the same stuff out over and over again.

Around 90 wpm on 10fastfingers.com with the 200 most common words, mostly lowercase and no punctuation.

Around 70 — 80 WPM. My speed was probably <=60 before I started college

121wpm on typeracer, but slower while coding.

At this speed knowing how to spell words becomes much more important. This way you can read entire words at once rather than reading words character by character.

Usually 45-55 wpm. I can't manage to use more than 4 fingers (index and middle of both hands) for typing. Do suggest how to overcome this problem if you faced it earlier.
