I had a similar scenario (large database with >20k records) to display in a listview/table but ended up updating the listview/table via AJAX and re-querying the database. From what I understand your ZIP code file is >2.5MB, isn't it? I'll try and see how my AJAX solution works out. Good to know, there is a plan B.
