Find a nice and speedy FTP server (like, perhaps ftp.uu.net) and download a
big file. A fast laptop (ethernet speed more than CPU) should be able to
fully load a T-1 connection. However, you possibly (probably) want to test
the line or firewall/switches in front of the line with multiple clients
doing large transfers simultaneously--that would require more than one node.
The value of such a test is questionable, but it's something a friend of
mine was just talking about so...
I found this off of google, and seems to have lots of little testing
utilities for different things, so you might find it useful:

I'm moving our office in a few weeks and having new T-1 installed tomorrow.
Does anyone have any good utilities to do some load testing on the line?
I've done it in the past by hooking up a few nodes and pulling audio and
video for a few hours but I'm unable to do that this time because the space
is still being built out. I'm only going to be able to hook up one lonely
