I would upload these files to a normal site where you could download them easier but free web service sites typically offer around 10-15MB space max and usually no more than 1-2MB per file.
Why aren't these files smaller? Probably because whoever cut them to AVI format did not have video editing software that would allow them to compress them to a smaller size. Personally, I'm glad to have the quality because I have cable internet, but I can see where it is a pain in the ass for the majority using phone connections.
For what it's worse, it's worth th 2hr download wait as long as you have a local ISP (so no long-distance charges).
