My ISP is throttling me. They are the worst ISP I have ever dealt with, and unfortunately the area I live in only has 1 ISP. Talk about a money-opoly.

Anyways, I was wondering if there is a good way to measure the download and upload speed coming in through the cable modem. Is there a physical box that I could place in between the modem and the ISP that would keep track of this data for me? Or is there a program to do this sort of thing?

Thanks for all your help!
