Have no idea how much data is one exclamation point.
It is not link speed problem, but TFTP is slow, by default to copy file size of 250MB takes around 30 minutes. You can speed it up by using larger blocksize (not sure is that available for all devices).

#config t

With this configuration settings it would take around 2 minutes to copy 250MB file.
