3 to 4 mins. Depends on the size of the egg, etc. Sometimes 5 mins.
Make sure your egg is room temp before adding to boiling. You can speed this in a bowl of hot tap water while the water comes to boil.

It also depends on how many eggs you put into what sized pot. It can take a good 6 minutes for 4 eggs in a small-medium pot.
