What Is The Best Way To Upgrade An NVR On a Private Network That Does Not Allow Local Downloading?

This topic is more for Manufacturers than anyone else, but I would appreciate any and all constructive comments. Typically manufacturers have a place on their websites to download the latest greatest software, particularly upgrades. Techs (in the field) have to find a Starbucks or someplace that has wifi and download the upgrades, then upgrade he NVR's. Some of these files can be quite large (even when zipped), taking hours to download if one has to use a public shared wifi signal. If the tech is out of his normal service area, he/she simply does not have access to large bandwidth for downloads. Is there a more efficient way to get software to them if they need it, and don't have it? We burned 2.5 hours the other day getting a new, but "must have" upgrade.

I realize this is vastly better than we used to have, but I am always looking to improve. I am the type that stands in front of a microwave oven and shouts "hurry up".

Thanks in advance.
