What are the top speeds of maglev trains?

Maglev trains have the technology to reach speeds in excess of 3,000 mph but any speed in excess of 300-400mph becomes impractical. The top speed depends more on how and where the maglev is built, how far apart stations are, and how much maintenance cost is considered acceptable. So, for the trains proposed so far today and may be in service in the next 20 years, it maglev trains will not exceed 400mph.
