Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but when I use FTP (filezilla) it downloads at about 10-15 kb/s. This may be because I'm manily using bad connections at shared wifi places while I travel (hostels, internet cafes, etc).

When I use a download manager it simultaneously opens up multiple downloads for the one file and downloads them all at once. So I typically get speeds of 80-90 kb/s using a download manager which is faster.
