If you would like to download large file like HD Video or Linux ISO image while you’re working at your Linux PC or laptop I recommend to use the following command:
wget -c -b “http://file/you/wish/to/download.ext” –limit-rate=100k
Where, -c will continue getting partially-downloaded file (if connection was dropped or smth else), -b will put wget downloading into background, –limit-rate=100k will limit downloading speed at 100 KBytes per second (KB/s).
P.S. man wget still works
