FTP download is slow

I implemented FTP code from http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...kb;en-us;832679 to download files from an FTP site. I've found that it has more overhead and is slower than HTTP. Isn't FTP supposed to have less overhead and be faster? My comparison is using webclient.downloadfile and puting the same file in a virtual directory of the same server where the FTP server is. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it is so slow? I've done some research on the Internet and it seems like all the FTP code samples use the same methodology, just coded slightly different.

thanks in advance.
