To install:
sudo apt-get install axel

Use:
syntax
axel url
eg:
axel -n 10 http://example.com/some_file.mov

The -n 10 option tells Axel to use a maximum of 10 simultaneous connections
when downloading the file. Another useful option is -a, which outputs a
wget-like report of download progress in a few lines rather than filling up
your screen with download progress messages.
