My best luck has come fromusing torrent for big downloads on release day.
From Red Hat today:

 One additional feature provided by the Linux community is the
 availability of SEVERN via BitTorrent.



   RPMS for Red Hat Linux 7.3 through 9 of BitTorrent are available

   Usage is simple:
   btdownloadcurses.py --url http://URL.torrent

   Allow incoming TCP 6881 - 6889 to join the torrent swarm.
