I would like to download latest ubuntu 12.04 LTS. But, I have a lousy connectivity. Is there torrent-like download available which I can pause and resume?

You could use the bittorrent download as you said, the links are on this page:

Yes. All Ubuntu releases are distributed via bittorrent for those who prefer that to traditional direct downloads. Torrent release links are listed on the Alternative Downloads page of the main Ubuntu site.

You can use wget to do that:

wget -c

After you lose the network just run it again in the same directory.
