Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't you use rsync?

I don't know exactly what rsync does, however, from what I can tell, it's supposed to synchronize two directories.

Stopping in different places and slowing down your download may be part of some load balancing/control measures. In other words, the site itself may be slowing down/stopping your access if you are consuming too much resources, for instance to prevent DoS attacks.
