BT is a distributed file share system that makes use of the upload speed of
the computers that are sharing the file between each other, so the speed is
purely dependant on the amount of people seeding / downloading because your
average uk upload is 32KB and with 2mb it would take 8 other people from the
uk to fill your connection.

It all depends on the other seeds / feeds - popular torrents with a lot
of both with likely give you a lightning download speed, although some
clients now allow users to restrict their upload speed to other users.

Once everyone does that, the torrent might as well be dead :-}
