There's no real way to create a distribution system that can keep up with today's broadband speeds without resorting to some sort of p2p distribution system.
Providers such as Akamai seem to be able to.
Exactly, pay up for a Content Distribution Network (CDN). It has distributed peers in datacenters all over the real world and internet backbone world. There is no legitimate reason for any for-profit company to distribute ANYTHING through BT. Corporations are simply saving on their bottom line by using BT and making users pay for their downloads in exchange for "upload money".
