Publius: I finally found a command line program which supports multiple connections to download 1 file.
$ axel -n 4 -a http://games.orcon.net.nz/files/ubuntu/ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso
1 connections downloads at ~32mbit/sec
4 connections downloads at ~58mbit/sec
12 connections downloads at ~70mbit/sec
Which makes me wonder what is going on.
traceroute to games.orcon.net.nz (188.8.131.52), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

?2? ufb.bng1.nct.orcon.net.nz (184.108.40.206)? 5.543 ms? 5.729 ms? 5.894 ms
?3? xe-2-2-0.cre1.nct.orcon.net.nz (220.127.116.11)? 4.325 ms? 4.275 ms? 4.226 ms

Could someone from Orcon comment? Speedtests that others have posted also on UFB 100mbit from other isps show they can get 80% of their connection speed without having to resort to extreme measures like this.
Whats more is i'm a business connection so if some sort of traffic shaping is happening then i'm not going to be impressed.
Zeon: Maybe just use another router then?
