    Use a download manager like download accelerator plus. It can find alternate servers, test their latency and chooses the best server to download from.
    Even if the server is slow, downloading from multiple servers at the same time will max out your connection. But some sites don't allow download managers. In that case use two threaded download with one thread for a site and/or change the http client identification to mozilla from the default DAP.

    I don't have dap installed now so lok around the preferences. I think you just choose the next higher option to 'Normal download' and you will have two threads. Then choose automatic choosing of server. The other option is in the preferences. Just look around.
