From the developer:
Autoping is a free menu bar indicator that shows you the current quality of your internet connection at a glance. It's particularly helpful for those who roam on variable connections, e.g. via mobile phones. The first time a user runs autoping , ask them whether they'd like it to launch at login.
You may want to check out more software for Mac, such as Throttled Pro, HippoVNC or IPNetRouterX, which might be similar to autoping.
