Sometimes it is necessary to limit the download rate of the wget command, e.g. when you are downloading a large file over a slow internet connection.
Wget Command Download Limit
The parameter to apply a download speed limit is the --limit-rate option. This setting is followed by the rate limit plus "k" for Kbit or "m" for MBit.
