bit rate:

The speed at which bits of data flow through a specific area or connection. The bit rate measures the number of bits over time (bits per second).



BitTorrent:

A peer-to-peer file distribution program. Files are broken into smaller chunks, distributed in fragments, and then reassembled on the requesting machine. If a piece is missing, each peer takes advantage of the best connection to find the missing pieces. BitTorrent is a very effective tool for sharing large amounts of data, such as videos and large audio files.
