One option: 
Use JOSM, and download the area you are interested in, and use a JOSM
map style that highlights things with different speed limits in
different colours
See for instructions: http://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Styles
Note there are separate map styles for default maxspeed (kmh) and mph

I find this is very useful while editing, as you can easily see how
complete maxspeeds are for an area, and if there's any gaps etc.
