It is more bandwidth friendly (and easier of the recipient's 
nerves) to use the --continue option of wget:

from  man 5 wget

           Continue getting a partially-downloaded file.  This is useful when
           you want to finish up a download started by a previous instance of
           Wget, or by another program.  For instance:

                   wget -c ftp://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/ls-lR.Z

which only downloads (and appends to the existing partial
transfer) the tail from however much it already has.  
Available in all posix compliant OS's and for the 
Microsoft Windows products, too.
