Bit<code></code>Torrent is a method of downloading large files that takes advantage of peer-to-peer file sharing techniques.  Normally, a single server or small group of servers are all that provide the bandwidth for anyone who downloads a particular file.  Bit<code></code>Torrent distributes the load among the various Bit<code></code>Torrent users who are downloading the file.  It does this by allowing downloaders to download bits of the file from the other users who already have those bits.
