How can I send HUGE files over the internet? (5GB, 20GB, etc)?

I need to get some large video files to people overseas that are going to analyze the videos and code them (it's foot traffic data/video). I've looked at Usendit, SugarSync, and a few others. It seems that they all have a 2GB file limit (but they don't tell you that up-front). In fact, with SugarSync they freely admit (through a service ticket I logged) that even if I share out a file that I've uploaded... nobody can download it if it's larger than 2GB.
I'm willing to PAY. In fact, I've upgraded my SugarSync account multiple times just hoping that some tier of their service will allow this. No dice.
I have only a SHORT-TERM need, so I'm willing to pay for any solution. I don't want to setup anything too technically complex (FTP server, etc). I want a website or a downloadable client that I can just let these files get uploaded to and then my remote worker crew can download them. I'm even willing to pay for THEIR accounts (5 of them) if need be.
BONUS POINTS: If the service is top-notch and doesn't throttle my upload (or download speeds). I've got access to a fiber cable and can upload at 100Mb/sec, but I've found that most of these services won't even accept more than about 100Kb/sec incoming.
Any ideas would be awesome! Thanks.
