You gotta pay for it!! Businesses use a T1 connection or better. Here is an article on the various flavors of T type connections http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-carrier .

You Can Use A 'SPLITTER' Program:
A - It Can Slice Large ( L ) Files Into Any Number Of Smaller ( S ) Ones,
B - You Can Then Send The ( S ) Files One By One, If Necessary,
C - It Can Reconstitute The Original ( L ) File Using All The ( S ) Ones.
There Are Several Free 'SPLITTER' Programs In The 'VERSIONTRACKER / DOWNLOAD / CNET' Site.

Another options would be setting up an FTP site from your computer if your internet speed is good.
Also youtube can be used for vidoes.

NO you do NOT need a T-anything pipe to do what you want. No T1, no T3, no OC, no Gig-E.

For those other file sharing sites, mediafire.com is pretty good. I've never used rapidshare because it forces free users to wait and I hate it. Ditto for most other file sharing sites (mediafire doesn't seem to do this)
Need a Windows ISO image?

Alternatively, you could use services like Dropbox and other online file storage services to share your media.
The best part is you can always delete stuff when you're done with them and re-use the space.

There are several ways to get large media from one node to another on a non-contiguous network (i.e. over the internet).
1. SELF-HOSTING - Have one site host the media on a server. There are several protocols that can be used to host files: FTP, SFTP, SSH, HTTP, etc. The drawback of this is that it requires knowledge of both IP's and requires that you are able to host a server (some ISP's block common server ports). Also, there is the risk of random person accessing your server if it is wide-open.
2. IRC - People have been and still do use Internet Relay Chat to send files back and forth fairly reliably and securely. It's relatively easy, just find a good client, log into an IRC server farm, open a channel (you can even password protect it). Other party logs into same server, joins channel, and you initiate file transfer to them. The benefits of this method is that it limits the exposure of either party and doesn't require any special technical knowlege. The drawbacks are that IRC farms have a tendency to be rather flaky and unstable. It would really suck if you were 90% through a transfer and then 'NET SPLIT!' 0_0
3. P2P - Oddly enough, even though peer-to-peer clients have been given a bad rap with the whole "anti-pirating" crusade, p2p protocols were originally developed for the sole purpose of legally being able to efficiently share files in a distributed manner just like you mention. Though you wouldn't know it, protocols like bittorrent and gnutella are being used to this day by businesses to distribute files. It is fast, efficient, cost effective, non-resource intensive and fault tolerant. Of course it is also completely insecure unless you put some sort of security on the file itself like encryption.
The trick to harnessing the power of p2p software to get a particular file to another specific person or persons from among the BILLIONS of files being shared on the network is in the name. Pick an impossibly unique name, maybe just a random string of 63 letters and numbers, rename your file with this name, and then give this to the other party to search for. The chances of another file having the same name as your file are like 1 in some ridiculously long number represented by a series of numbers and letters. Viola! Instant end-to-end sharing.
