Default Re: On Multisegmented Downloading

Have the servent maintain an average download speed of files that were already transferred. If host A is downloading above that average speed then have host B send a smaller portion of the file in proportion to the how much faster host A is sending.

Ex: Avg. speed from before: 50 K/s
Host A speed: 100 K/s
Have Host B start 67% into the file (Host A is twice the average so have it cover the first two-thirds, twice what Host B needs to cover, 33%).
