I have a large file I need to upload for others to download(300 gig) Does anyone know of a place to upload it to cheaply?

what type of internet connection do you have? if you've only got a 1 or 2 meg line then your upload speed is going to be about 256Kb a second, which means its going to take you 10 days to upload the file.

A quicker, cheaper and easier way would be to burn it to a CD and then send it to them via post

just realsied that a 300 gig file won't fit on a CD.......

Ok I guess i am being too optimistic. Thanks anyway.

300gig??? what sort of file is that? I don't think there is even a hard disk drive of that capacity at the moment.

Are you sure it is gig (gb) and not meg (mb)???

I hope they are not on dial-up:

56 K (Modem) 56,000 bps = 1 year, 167 days, 14 hrs, 38 mins, 26 secs

I think it must be 300MB

Oops sorry it is 300 meg not gigs.

You could use Azureus to create a torrent file for it and share the torrent. You will then be able to share it.
