Multi-connection multi-part file downloading tools on Linux

Is there any good multi-connection multi-part file downloading tools on Linux? wget is great but can only make 1 connection for 1 file. Sometimes, it is too slow on some networks.

I use aria2 which supportsmMulti-connection download.

aria2 can download a file from multiple sources/protocols and tries to utilize your maximum download bandwidth. Really speeds up your download experience.

Try this command:

aria2c -m 10 -s 10 -x 10 \
-d /path/to/dir/ -o file.name http://example.com/file.name

or

aria2c -m 10 -s 10 -x 10 \
http://example.com/file.name
