'WhiteWater' lets people with limited or metered bandwidth publish files for download by thousands of people without saturating their bandwidth. Downloaders distribute chunks of the file amongst themselves, but gain by downloading several parts of the file simultaneously. The download speed is limited only by the downloaders own bandwidth, not that of the publisher. It can also be used in server or proxy mode, publishing and downloading files for entire networks whilst providing more permanent sharing of cached files.
