    meh... the prob with bit torrent is that it starts out slow and then slowly it advances. I need something that is fast at all times.

    The best way to download Linux iso's is to get a program like GetRight that allows multiple source downloads. Then go to http://www.linuxiso.org/ and queue up as many download sources for the same file. You'll have you're iso's in no time (assuming you're on a broadband connection).

    So instead of one 100k/s download you have four 100k downloads, that would be 400k/s, faster than the minimum you asked for. So the problem is what again?

    Maybe it's easier for you to tell us what you've already ruled out, and why.

    Trust me it's how I always get my Linux distros and I can usually get 300-400k/s and get 500-700MB isos in around a half an hour.
