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?

You can use aria2c .. -c option should do the trick (look for word wget in man :))

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