By that I mean are you installing your application into their servers, or are you hosting the application in your servers. In the Saas model, FTP can become an issue because they have to make sure they open FTP ports, and they make have some company policies against that. If it's installed, it should be easier since it should be easier for them to open ports internally (or not depending on how paranoid they are)
ANother thing that we did is in situations where our clients do have to physically upload the file through HTTP, we asked them to zip the file. This reduces the need to send large files. Or alternatively, ask your client to split up the file into multiple uploads. If they are going to do things in stupid ways, why make it easy for them? :p

As an alternate solution, you can install a flash component for upload files.
