Limiting downloading speed
Speed is an important factor while downloading. If speed is not defined then it might use full bandwidth available which will slow down the internet connection for other users. This can be avoided by limiting the downloading speed or rate.
Example:wget --limit-rate=150k https://www.google.com/doodles/mukeshs-93rd-birthday
Look at the above snapshot, with first command downloading speed is 280k/s but with second command (which is highlighted) downloading speed is restricted by 150k/s.
