/s, as in Byte
and not Bit
. As an electrical engineer I have really embraced the marketing nonsense of referring to internet packages in their "bit" rating as the real world, using common operating systems, you deal in how many bytes per second are being transmitted.
I have a 10MB down / 1MB up package, should real-world translate to around 100kB/s.
This issue with mailing out discs, is that it takes 3 hours to burn, then there is the cost of supplying discs and doing all of that. I already have at minimum 100 hours invested in this project.
There is also the issue of having the data in the same format for a torrent if mailed out. I'd have to mail and "data" blu-ray with the .rar archive file structure as opposed to burning the disc ready for BDMV playback. This means the recepient will need to move to harddrive, unpack, reburn disc.
The torrent, however slow, seems like the method that is the least amount of work for everyone.
