If there was hard cap on bandwidth, say, to those 5 MB/sec, then sure, each
would get 2.5 MB/sec. But I think chances are this is not the case here (the
current low speed attained is caused by something else than a hard limit), and
running two, in effect with 2x as much parallel TCP streams, will be able to
utilize quite a bit more bandwidth out of this connection than a single
instance can.

With respect,
