Increatse transfer speed with multi segmenting

In some ftp transferring, the files can be segmented and multi threaded to increase throughput and allow faster transfer speeds. The current throughput I am getting is only 400KB/s while with filezilla on single thread I got 1.5MB/s and this is a huge difference that will make me not want to use swish until it is comparable in speed or even better, to my knowledge filezilla will open more connections to download more files at a time which is multi threading, but multi segmenting would be the breakup of one file to thread those pieces which would speed up single file transfers more than filezilla multi threading could.

another thing that I just noticed as that it isn't saving my password to my connection which is annoying

It's an interesting suggestion. I'm not sure how Filezilla can do this for SFTP without opening new sessions (which each have to be logged in sepearately) for each thread.
