Default Recommendations for file hosting?

I have builds of a gamelet I'm developing which I want to put somewhere on the web for people to download. Now I can (and have) put them on my personal website but need to worry about bandwidth doing that. Also some people say they have problems downloading from the ISP I'm using.

Any recommendations? The builds are currently in the 10-20 meg range.

(If curious the builds are available on the downloads page beneath Strange Movement.)

Megaupload is the best free file hosting website for me.
Though I haven't used it for uploading, I've downloaded tons of files from
it and it worked great.

http://www.rapidshare.de/ is my favorite hosting site. During certain hours of the day it has limits on how much you can download, but it's also the fastest and most reliable upload site I've found (I've tried many of them).

Wow, thanks for taking the time to type all this, Candle. Your post will definitely come in handy when I have to upload something on the net.

Exhaustive - and exhausting - list, that.

Thank you, Candle. That should make life much easier when looking for places to upload stuff .

This is a good site for searching a massive list of free hosts:

http://www.freewebspace.net/

If your total project is < 50MB, then I'm sure you can find a good, free host without popups.
