According to,
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=ftp&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+6.0-RELEASE+and+Ports&format=html
looks like, progress may be the ticket.

Personally, I haven't used ftp in about 7 years. If I need a file from
an ftp server, I use the fetch command on a FreeBSD server/workstation
to retrieve it. The fetch command has a progress bar & it is lightning
quick :-)) I can always scp the retrieved file to any nix system on my
LAN. BTW, IIRC you don't need an FTP server handy to play with. You can
retrieve a file, via ftp from the cli, off any ftp server on the
internet.
