if kget is a frontend to wget then the same options probably apply. From the manpage:
Limit the download speed to amount bytes per second. Amount may be
expressed in bytes, kilobytes with the k suffix, or megabytes with
the m suffix. For example, --limit-rate=20k will limit the
retrieval rate to 20KB/s. This kind of thing is useful when, for
whatever reason, you don't want Wget to consume the entire evail-
Note that Wget implementeds the limiting by sleeping the appropri-
ate amount of time after a network read that took less time than
specified by the rate. Eventually this strategy causes the TCP
transfer to slow down to approximately the specified rate. How-
ever, it takes some time for this balance to be achieved, so don't
be surprised if limiting the rate doesn't work with very small
files. Also, the "sleeping" strategy will misfire when an
extremely small bandwidth, say less than 1.5KB/s, is specified.
