Can anyone help with the parameter that ensures that wget will fetch the file at a minimum specified download rate?

    This doesn't seem theoretically possible. If I have a 1Mb connection and I set the minimum to 10Mb/s, how is wget going to achieve that? Did you mean "maximum" instead of "minimum"? – Ladadadada Jan 9 '13 at 13:56

You can not set minimum download rate. You can set the maximum download rate using --limit-rate=amount option. Amount is expressed in bytes per second.
