You are serving SVG to the client? and not a jpeg generated from the SVG?

Here's one possibility which may be made to work.

Use Apache web server as the front end rather than Tomcat or whatever your 
servlet engine is and install mod_gzip. You should be able to configure 
that to compress particular output such as the SVG. mod_gzip copes with 
detecting browsers which can transparently accept gzipped output.
