    Doesn't it seem weird that the "GetRight" download manager program, is only 364kb?

    http://www.getright.com/get.html

    I think I may have clicked the wrong link..

    lol, I switched away from dialup about a month ago and I love it Also in a week my plan is getting changed to be even faster with a lot more bandwidth.
    It's strange that you use dialup with bandwidth limits though, every ISP I can think of has no limit for dialup. When I had dialup it has this very annoying feature to auto disconnect me if I idle too long, making it impossible to download large files even if I felt like starting the download and sleeping for half the day
    Oh and if you're using FireFox I remember there being a very good download accelerator but I can't remember the link

    There are "finger" utilities that exist to "prod" the ISP every so often to keep your connection active.

    It won't benefit dial-up. Segmented downloading is a means of breaking up a file into parts (segments), and requesting each part from a mirror. The idea is that by spreading the load across multiple servers, especially if those servers are busy, the user can achieve faster download speeds: a heavily taxed server may not be able to upload to the full capacity of a broadband connection. However, dial-up users aren't going to strain servers in the same sense. The overall download speed isn't likely to increase unless the server is running exceptionally poorly.

    There is another issue: each new connection will have its own overhead. You don't just recieve 250KB, for example, when downloading a file that's listed as that size. The file is broken up into packets, each of which has extra data attached. Moreover, due to the nature of TCP as a reliable transport protocol, there's extra network traffic as the protocol notifies the sender of errors and acknowledges successful receipt.

    "doesn't they"

    I think that's grammatically incorrect
