Even with the fastest broadband connection, you should consider installing a download manager. Download any large file and, if the connection is dropped 90% in to the transfer, you’ll want to resume where the file stopped being sent by the remote host. With most browsers, they will only enable you to either restart or stop the download and you’ll have to start from the beginning.
In addition, most browsers will source the file from one location. Download managers will often attempt to source a download from multiple locations or in multiple parts, attempting to speed up the transfer of the file.
WinGet is a simple download manager that will attempt to speed up the files you download from the Internet. If you have problems with files, you can resume from the place the file stopped transferring. It will also integrate with your existing web browser and you can use WinGet as your download manager.
