When would instantaneous speed be the same as average speed?

would it be
when the speed is constant?
when the position changes linearly with time
or would it be in the limit when the time interval goes to zero?

I thought it would be when the speed is constant, but i'm not sure...I've tried looking in my textbook but cannot find the answer
