The app is Transmission.

Transmission is a cross-platform BitTorrent client that is Open Source, Easy, Lean, Native and Powerful.

And the value displayed on the badge is either the total download rate or total upload rate for all the torrents currently being managed by the app. –  Ian C. Jun 28 '11 at 13:58
    
Also, if your question was partially because you are looking for an application to display network statistics, have a look at iStat Menus –  jjungnickel Jun 28 '11 at 15:14

There is an app for upload and download speed though, along with disk access and cpu usage, all shown in the menu bar at the top: http://www.ragingmenace.com/software/menumeters/.
