ISP bandwidth meter

Hi everyone,

I have looked around but cant really find what I need.

I want to be able to test the connection speed to my ISP and then log them. my company is unhappy with our 1.5MB like (my home 512KB access is faster) and want to get a report and send to the ISP to complain.

Are their any programs out there for this purpose?
OR is there a command I can run to count the connection speed > write to a file and do this every minute of so??

Thanks in Advanced

I find bmon to be pretty handy and versatile, and it doesn't have many dependencies.

Have a look here
