I have used wget to try to download a big file. After several hours I realized that it would have been better to use a download accelerator. I would not like to discard the significant portion that wget has already downloaded. Do you know of any download accelerator that can resume this partial download?

I have discovered that lftp can resume the download too. An excellent tutorial can be found at http://tutorials.papamike.ca/pub/lftp.html.
