Oops - failed Arithmetic 5   (That's Arithmetic 101 for you guys in the US)

1000 * 15 * 20 = *300* kb

Definitely SQL is looking like a good bet, depending on the access 
pattern esp. for reads. If you are reading without searching, does that 
imply the client needs all, or most, of the data from the file ? If so, 
simple (compressed) text transfer may be the way to go.
