download transfer speed

1. Is there such a thing as tweaking for download transfer speed?
2. Do different types of data download at different speeds always?

I seem to be noticing that iso's that I download ( ftp ) seem to download more than twice as fast as other stuff I download ( ftp )

Thanks for the reply aaa

The speed will depend heavily on you and the site's traffic, bandwidth, and location. There isn't much to tweak. I think there is a method for getting server to give you more bandwidth that the download managers use. Compressed data will download at slower speeds than uncompressed data.
