How to measure actual Network link speed

We have a Telco that manages all of our links between each of the branch office in our WAN.
I want to measure the actual speed of the link between 1 of these branch offices and our Data Center.

The link is meant to be 4MB, but I think it is closer to 2MB. We have Riverbed appliances at each of the sites, but I cannot find any clear indication about the actual speed of the link. I only know the % of acceleration etc.

Are there any FREE tools out there that I can use to measure the speed?
