FWIW, as a user: when I get the latest LO, I always do so by torrent,
and it comes at the speed of my connection (~700kB/sec); when I get
the latest AOO from Sourceforge, it's slower (100-200kB/sec). So I
always go for a torrent of anything that's the least bit popular
(Ubuntu CD images as well).

( being that slow is odd. Maybe I'm unlucky with which UK mirror
it gives me.)
