Internet speed logging app


My ISP claims to be giving me downlink speeds of 512kbps between 6pm-6am and weekends, and 128k the rest of the time. However, it's hardly hardly ever that I get close to any of this and can see the speeds Iḿ experiencing on the netmon screenlets.

Would there be any app that could run in the background and record details of my connection as I browse the net - a log which I could give to my ISP to prove my speed issues? (I would not be refering to things like as they just give a one-moment check)
