Guys, you can use megaupload.com to upload the file for free (up to 250 mb!) And people can download the file.

It downloads relatively fast (I avg about 6 kbps) compared to other free file hosting websites. And I do not believe there is a limit to the # times it can be downloaded

Go to advanced search
