#2762 reopened Feature request

segmented downloading (and uploading?)

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.

Thank you.

No, it wastes too much bandwidth since FTP has a rather big protocol overhead.

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.
