Apache not using it's full download potential.

It seems that every download request won't download a file at a rate higher than 40kb/s.  I have a program called getright that makes multiple requests to a server to make a faster download speed.  Using getright and 2 requests, I go 80kb/s.  Obviously, there's some sort of cap, but I'm not sure how to change that.  40kb/s seems a bit slow...

hello
Well its due to the load on the download server at http://apache.org 
Since Apache is a very popular web server , too many ppl download it every second so you bound to have sometimes high and low connection.
Ys Getright is a good downloading program.
It also depends upon your type of internet connection that you have .
