Questionwhat is more reliable than ftp? Pin

Apologies if this is in the wrong place but I couldn't see that it fitted anywhere else either

My clients regularly transfer largish files via ftp and everything generally works happily

As they are in an expensive serviced office one client has transferred their internet connection over to a 4G solution to get much faster access without the corresponding bill and generally it works but....

as might be expected their ftp transfers now have many retries and failed transfers. Sometimes the transfer appears to be successful but the resulting file might be a small percentage of the correct file size

Does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives to look at that might work better (more reliably) over the 4g network?
