Maybe he has another problem. He's creating a WebRequest/WebResponse
pair and is never closing it. In fact, he's not even using it, he's
just taking the file size. So for each file it creates two connections
to the same server, being one not closed in the end, so in practice
(with his code) only one download per server can be done concurrently.
Am I right?

Try not using WebClient (as it's just sugar on WebRequest), see the
attached file (which works here).
