I've never had good luck with torrents. When I need to download a distribution 
CD, the Kubuntu stuff is all mirrored by my ISP Virgin Media. At the present 
my connection is 2Mb/sec (supposed to be going up to 10) and I consistently 
get 250kB/sec downloads, which I think is my full connection speed. At this 
rate it doesn't take long to download a CD, which suits me fine.
