You can manually compress them... or script it compress.  You can use hardware devices at each endpoint that compress/decompress (WAN Accelerators - not usually cheap things).

If these are UPDATED files vs new files, you can try to setup DFS using Server 2003 R2 and later - the R2 and later versions of DFS will transfer only block level changes, so if it's the same file with a little changed data each time, then the transfer will only transfer the changed data parts of the file, effectively speeding up the replication process.

If it's a different file each time, I would split the file into many smaller pieces.
Then if the transfer fail in the middle, you don't have to send the whole thing another time.

You can do that with tools like Winzip and Winrar.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
