I want to download a file of large size ok?

It is on many servers but all servers are so slow, each link alone give me 10 KB/s but other fast downloads reach 130 KB/s.

I'm asking if there are any method or available software that can download one file from many places URLs at the same time???

What technology do you want to use to download the file? – Open Source Jan 16 '10 at 18:30
There are many "download managers" that will allow you to do this. Some free, some pay. They all basically operate the same, but some have features other don't. There are probably too many to list, you really need to search for download manager and see and try to see what you like. – Scott McClenning Jan 16 '10 at 21:08

Free Download Manager offers this (amongst many other features):

Simultaneous downloading from several mirrors

Free Download Manager is able to download files from several mirrors simultaneously.

Download acceleration

Free Download Manager splits files into several sections and downloads them simultaneously, allowing you to use any type of connection at the maximum available speed. With FDM download speed increases, or even more!

FDM is open source freeware.

This is exactly what BitTorrent does. I would make a torrent and then have the many slow servers seed it.

With orbit downloader (freeware) you could add mirrors for simultaneous multi-parts download.
(It also have options to automatically search mirrors and to download from peers (orbitnet P2P) but from my experience they aren't really effective)
