The torrent speed that you obtained must of happened within the first
month of the distro's availability. My past experience with Fedora
Unity is that not long after release there were too few clients to
make a torrent useful.  (Remember torrent clients only have to give
back 4 K-bits/sec of bandwidth ) You are better off using jigdo.
