Thanks H_TeXMeX_H, that's really surprising. I wonder what's going on there?

Well, I guess the server allows multiple connections, and then the only limit is your download speed from the ISP. As long as the server does not put a cap on the number of connections or download speed per IP, you can download at the maximum allowed speed of your ISP. This is not the case for every server, because they do put limits, for example file sharing servers ...

Ah, so it likely only works up to the speed of your internet connection.
I wonder why the server is limited in the speed it can serve to one connection. I suppose each thread is given a slice of the bandwidth so the more threads you have the more bandwidth?

Well, that's just the way they set up the server I guess. If it works, as it does, then the server config and limits are done on a per-connection basis on many servers. This is not the case for filesharing servers tho, they do it per IP and sometimes per IP range.

So, you could say that the acceleration works as long as the server allows it.

I was under the impression that routers in between only see individual packets and are completely unaware of connections.
