From the tests I've run, use the torrents. That is quite fast. Downloading the iso is much slower from the mirror sites.

Torrrents are always going to the fastest option during the time soon after a new release.

After a month or so, a standard HTTP download may be a better option.

Just as a quick note if you've not downloaded it yet, I got it last night and managed to get pretty consistently over 200KB/s from the fedoraproject site linked above (that's pretty good for my connection). I can recommend it, and it will only get faster as time goes by. torrents can also be good. YMMV
