BitTorrent and Segmented Download
Using Prozilla I can reach 12 Kbytes/second (max speed from ISP - user), although the connection between the file server and ISP is only 4 Kbytes/second.
For 100 MB file:
1. First prozilla client download the first 33 MB part of file, with speed of 4 Kbytes/second.
2. Second prozilla client download the second 33 MB part of file, with speed of 4 Kbytes/second.
3. Third prozilla client download the last 33 MB part of file, with speed of 4 Kbytes/second.
The 3 clients run together / parallel download at the same time, with total download speed of 12 Kbytes/second.
At the end of download, the 3 downloaded files are merged to create the original file.
Is there any BitTorrent client with similar capabilities?
(segmented / parallel / multithreaded download)

BitTorrent does this anyways.. it's designed to spread the load across many users by d/l'ing various chunks of it from different people simultaneously.. in fact, as soon as you have part of the file, you start u/l'ing to others that need the parts you already have..Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
