It was 2.8 GB via Torrent sites, and took about 30 hours (spread across a week!!)

Left running in the background so it was no great inconvenience.

No, I would fundamentally disagree.

It is a lot less than Broadband.

If you meant to imply anything else outside the scope of broadband speed I would urge extreme caution.
