Definately use Bittorrent. I just have cable modem and mine downloaded all 3 CDs in about 8 hours.. Pretty nice since I couldn't even get to the main site to download it and any mirror I found wouldn't even come close to letting me in.
I still have mine running to help out all the people trying to download it.
For people having a dual boot with Windows and of course Linux, you can use a download manager like GetRight in Windows to download the ISOs. When setup properly, the download manager will search directly (not having to try the mirror links in the Fedora web site...) and will find all the mirrors where the ISOs are located. Then, you can see which mirrors have good access speed (i.e. ping timing), select the right one and even switch when starting to be slow...
With that, I downloaded the 3 ISOs a lot lot lot faster than 8 hours... Of course, I have a cable modem and, with one file at a time, I was getting about 370 Kbps download speed yesterday morning.
