Well, first off, this won't really benefit much from threading. The
biggest bottleneck is going to be the speed of your connection to that
server. Fetching in parts is likely to actually take longer.

It's certainly possible to do what you want, though. What you want is
to figure out how big the file is, and then ask the server to download
different pieces of it. But you'll need to properly understand what
you're doing on the HTTP level.

I would advise finding some other way to practice threading.
