Download acceleration is a method used by download managers for downloading a file using multiple connections after splitting it in several parts.

Besides completing the download task much faster, this method is also meant to overcome the bandwidth restrictions imposed by certain servers and/or ISPs.

Download accelerators will boost the download speed only as much as a user's bandwidth allows it, regardless of the number of threads created by each separate download.

There are also a number of download accelerators that feature support for resuming the download if it gets interrupted.
