    Does anyone know of a service that allows accelerated uploads of giant files (2 file totaling 65ish GBs), a link for download, and NOT have a monthly subscription fee?

    At the very least, you should check out Signiant Media Shuttle. They have a free trial that allows you to send a file, no size limit. https://info.signiant.com/Send-A-FIle_Form.html

    You’re right though that most of these seem oriented toward people who are doing this constantly, rather than a few now and again…

    I need a FedEx of files. I need to start that business, is really what I should do. 🙂

    Signiant is fantastic. I have been on the receiving end.

    Starting “professional” price is $15,000/year. I’m not even going to touch a free demo for that. 🙂

    Thanks for the response.

    Remember when YouSendIt was a thing? That’d be cool.

    In the meantime, FedEx may in fact be your best solution. Unless the client is in a location where they can access the internet but can’t receive FedEx.

    Tron?

    Have you looked at Aspera? It’s more enterprise level so it might have the same problem as Signiant.

    If you’re file sizes were smaller then WeTransfer would be an option (limit is 20gig)

    Have you looked at HighTail (formerly YouSendIt)? Their “Pro” level says there are no file size limits.

    FedEx is easy! But this client needs it in a certain spot digitally. It’s a long convoluted story for another time.

    I have, but it’s monthly. We already have multiple file transfer services and options in place, I just can’t send 65GBs.

    Aspera is also amazing, but you are right in that it’s also enterprise level.

    Oh well, I will make do with ftp (gulp).

    What about BitTorrent Sync?

    https://www.getsync.com/

    We’ve used it a couple times for the scenario you describe, and it’s way less scary than ftp.

    Yeah, I thought about a torrent as well, but bailed as I thought it may be too ‘complicated’?

    Did your client (or the receiving end) have any issues with it? I am trying to make it really easy for them.

    Some sort of digital courier service. I’d get in on that.
