Please don't make such statements. Both TOP and BOTTOM posting is an acceptable practice. It is up to the reader's preference as to what he/she wants. My preference IS TOP posting. There are a number of posters that use INTERLACED posting. Where their text is interspersed within the body for ease of clarity. I like INTERLACED posting the best; just a preference. Your mileage may vary.

Are you using same version than me? Because the report is different.

I appear to be using "1.11.5-devel", however I find it unlikely that 1.11.4 would have the bug you believe it to have.

When I investigate this issue was because real time in human perception to download is not the time wget report.

As I stated, I think this is expected.

I'm using a very slow connection (mobile gprs) and download all wap page (16K) takes 12s in average, with wget and other programs included firefox.

I'm seeing all downloaded process, and real time to downloaded all files takes 10-15 seconds each time. Is sure that is not 1.4 second

I really think that this is an error, I tried several times and behavior is the same.

Well it is easy to check. Start a download, and watch closely wget's output. From the moment you see 'Saving to:' and the progress bar appear to the moment the progress bar indicates completion, see if you think that amount of time is 1.4s or 11.3s. Given those numbers, it shouldn't be difficult to tell. (Actually you would need to do this with a single file, in which case I think you would see results similar to mine; an overall time of about 2 seconds, and a download time of a fraction of a second.)

My guess is that it takes quite some time to get the handshakes and such round-tripped between you and the server. Since this time is not included in the number wget reports, this would account for the discrepancy you are seeing.

11 K/s and high latency sounds reasonable for the type of connection you describe.
