We've seen the same chinese IPs downloading the DVD iso's 24/7 with like 10-20
concurrent connections, sometimes using upwards of 300Mbit/sec. We dropped
supporting the DVD downloads and implemented systems to ban such malicious
activity. There's no way this is a 'download accelerator'. Someone or some
ISP is trying to generate traffic (for whatever reason, maybe to meet peering
quotas), and using our DVD mirrors as an easy method.
