    For FTP, I find wget to be very good if you don't mind CLI.

    Let me tell why i hate kget:

    1. I am not getting enough speed
    2. I lost enough time with this, for breaking download (file damage)
    3. Not user friendly
    4. If any other software use bandwidth, then it just push it task.

    As bigtomrodney said, try wget. Should be on your system already, and kget is merely a front-end to it AFAIK. I can get download speeds up to 680 KB/s with a good mirror. I do not think it's a problem of kget - it's rather a problem with the site you're downloading from.

    I think what you're looking for is a download accelerator.
