F7 - why so few mirrors?

I'm currently downloading Fedora-7 from the nearest mirror,
and I am told it will take 5 days ...

I tried bittorrent, but this was forbidden
presumably by my ISP.

My recollection is that there were far more mirror sites for FC-6.
Is that wrong?

Incidentally, while it doesn't affect me since I don't burn the ISOs,
the decision not to offer CD ISOs seems bizarre to me.
What was the justification?
