It would be nice if FilleZilla client supported something that I think is called "segmented downloading": the possibility to download a file using multiple connections to the same server; each connection would download a different segment from the same file.
I just had a situation with a stupid ISP, that severely limits the bandwidth on each TCP connection, but not for all connections.

Hi, it's important if you want to download a huge file from remote server in emergency situation. CuteFTP has this feature, and it's twice even more faster than FileZilla. Please consider it.
No, it wastes too much bandwidth since FTP has a rather big protocol overhead.
