I don't know of one. I have almost received permission to set one up, but I'm
still working on it. I used to seed some of the FreeBSD ISO images on
bittorrent, but when we rebuilt our web server a few months ago I didn't
install a bittorrent client.
Using a mirror on an Internet2 connected university is probably nearly as fast
as using one at UF would be. Those connections seem to be largely limited by
the server speed, rather than bandwidth. I think the following are Internet-2
ftp5.freebsd.org = xyz.csail.mit.edu (sometimes slow)
ftp9.freebsd.org = osmirrors.cerias.purdue.edu
ftp12.freebsd.org = reflection.ncsa.uiuc.edu
ftp14.freebsd.org = warhammer.mcc.virginia.edu
If you need something specific I might already have it downloaded. If so and
if it will help, I can put it on our web server for you as a temporary
