I have been trying to use wget to download stuff from the internet. Surprisingly I found that:
1. If I start the download, wget tries to get all the bandwidth available (which seems good to me) and reaches a peak speed say x1 bytes/sec.
2. If the internet connection breaks (say for 10 seconds) the speed reduces (from x1 bytes/sec to x2 bytes/sec). Once the internet connection is back to normal, wget continues to download at the same speed which it dropped to i.e. x2 bytes/sec and never tries to go above that.
In other download programs, the software tries to utilize all the bandwidht that it can use at any point of time.
I was curious why wget was failing to do so...
