In the past I also tried great service like rapidshare and filesonic but I left them both. I left rapidshare after they set a low download limit for each account and filesonic stopped supporting broad audience sharing of uploaded files.
After a quick market survey I looked at three options: uploaded.to FileFactory and turbobit.
Uploaded.to gives a great service for a fair price. If more people used it I would have probably renewed my subscription.
FileFactory is a well known service with many links supplied. They also offer a free basic account which I am currently checking out.
turbobit.net is also a service which is gaining popularity with many links found when searching for a download. There is no free basic account but they offer a very tempting price for subscriptions. A 6 months subscription will cost the same as a 3 months subscription from a competing services. I had to check it out.

Looks like I did an error when subscribing for turbobit.
It seems that they offer an option to signup for free (no understandable difference than anonymous download though). I haven't seen it at first.
I paid for a 6 month account via paypal and was supposed to receive my user / password by mail.
After not reveiving it I noticed the registration option but still no user / password.
Opened a support call but had no reply for 24h now.
I also tried contacting them through skype but they are offline.
Looks like i might have to open a dispute on the transaction on paypal.
I'll keep you updated.
Update 18/5/12 22:00 :
After 24 hours from sending my support ticket to turbobit,
I received my username / password in the mail.
I immediately started testing download speeds buy looking for files and downloading them.
Tests aren't conclusive yet but it looks like I can only use 70% of bandwidth for turbobit that makes it a bit slower than FileFactory.
