They can't "increase download speed".
At most they can download blocks of data simultaneously using multiple connections, but only if the server supports that.
And that explains how they can resume downloads too.
Store the blocks you already have, and on resume just download the rest.
BUT that only works if the server supports it, and many don't.
In fact a lot of servers will block you completely if you attempt to do it as your actions would consume too many resources, slowing down the connection of everyone else.
