Silent and unattended large file download with wget

If you would like to download large file like HD Video or Linux ISO image while you’re working at your Linux PC or laptop I recommend to use the following command:

wget -c -b “http://file/you/wish/to/download.ext” –limit-rate=100k

Where, -c will continue getting partially-downloaded file (if connection was dropped or smth else), -b will put wget downloading into background, –limit-rate=100k will limit downloading speed at 100 KBytes per second (KB/s).

P.S. man wget still works 🙂
