    Micro$oft's operating systems' network code is optimized for running broadband connections like T-3 lines. Download accelerators intercept the network code process in RAM and modify it to optimize your slower connection, that's all, they won't affect broadband connections at all. The Mac OS network code supports broadband and slower dialup equally, removing the need for any such accelerator. There are download managers, per say, that you could find at versiontracker, but there aren't any programs that could actually make a download go faster.
