import larger pst into Office 365

I have a small business customer with 5 users. 2 if the users have pst files which are easily managed and I have simply imported them into their Exchange Online via Outlook.

The 3 remaining users have fairly large pst files (2GB +)

I was thinking of putting the 3 pst files onto an external hard drive and bringing them back to my office where I have a much better upload bandwidth on my internet conection.

Are there any tools or methods that you would recommend I use in this case. I have read that there is an import feature in Office 365 Admin centre but I cant see anything myself.

You can certainly use the new Import feature, but I feel it might be an overkill for just 3 pst files. Here's the documentation just in case: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms.o365.cc.ingestionhelp.aspx#BKMK_NetworkUpload

Just use some spare machine and upload them via Outlook, it might take a while but it's easy to do.

Hello, I have successfully used Migrationwiz from BitTitan for mailboxes as large as 18G. There is a cost but I have found the tool really user friendly and the support very responsive.
