I'm a complete newbie, but would using a bigger file not be more accurate. 

Using a 7MB file on a 1Gbit (+- 130Mbit/sec transfer *theoretical*)
is not going to stress the connection. 

My guess would be that the file is transfered without utilizing the line.
and since it's copying back and forth it's est a new connection for each transfer.

then again .. I might be completely wrong ;P

Unauthorised use of characters, images, sounds, odors, severed limbs, noodles, wierd dreams, strange looking fruit, oxygen, and certain parts of Jupiter are strictly forbidden.  If I find you violating, or molesting my property in any way, I will employ a pair of burly convicts to find you, kidnap you, and perform god-awful sexual experiments on you until you lose the ability to sound out vowels.  I don't know why you are still reading this, but by doing so you have proven that you have far too much time on your hands, and you should go plant a tree, or read a book or something.
