    What's the most efficient way to send a large file somewhere for someone to download? If there's a professional service that does this. I'd like to know.

    Use physical media (data DVD) or FTP.

    Peace...

    You could run an FTP server on your machine and have them connect.

    Filezilla has free server and client.

    This is going to take a while. Why not mail it?

    You could try BitTorrent, possibly. I'm sure you could find a file hosting service you could pay to host the file BUT you've still got to get the file transferred to the service, like this one.

    Here is one Google search I did.

    Peace...

    Even with a professional service and a good internet connection, that is going to to take a while to download. I bet mailing it would be faster.

    Um... Rapidshare is fast! Why not just split your files, into several 100MBs, and tell your friends to join them later?

    You can use Gsplit 2.1
    http://www.gdgsoft.com/gsplit/
    ...free original file splitter that lets you split your large files into a set of smaller files called pieces.

    much better if you'll use the FREE mediafire service(no counters)...
    (I've done it, only through http://www.mediafire.com/, when I needed to upload a 1GB cam movie file)
