Thoughts that come to mind...

* Do you really, _really_ need the ISO on the day of release?
* Could you get it two days later?
* How about rate limiting the download to reduce housemate annoyance
using wget --limit-rate <url>
* Come to the release party - someone will likely have a CD there (not
a shipit one, but a home burn)
* Download the release candidate ISO now, and then use rsync or jigdo
on the day to update it (minimal download - can also be rate limited).
* Contact your local LUG to ask if someone else has high speed
broadband and would be willing to help?
* other suggestions I haven't thought of yet...
