14.2 > Network > axel (2.17.8)

Axel accelerates the HTTP/FTP downloading process by using multiple
connections for one file. It can use multiple mirrors for a download. Axel
has no dependencies and is lightweight, so it might be useful as a wget
clone on byte-critical systems. Axel is the perfect utility for those
connections to wherever you are downloading from that may have a limit
on ftp stream speeds, http sessions that burst and slow down, or servers
with a slow connection.
