 Have you actually tried bittorrent? My guess is that it's not going
to be better.

 In theory you could use something like udpcast, but that will
probably be much harder to setup than just installing yum-cron and
having it do the downloads to clients at 2am or whatever.
 Or not having the updates be in such large chunks.
