Getting Slackware 9.1 - alternative to bit torrent?

Hi, I'm in the process of downloading slack 9.1 off of bit torrent, but it is going really slowly for me. On two of the cds it's downloading at like 1k/s!! Is there an alternative way to get the iso images? Thanks in advance.

slackware's homepage gives links to ftp servers from which you can do ftp downloads.
