Internet based file sharing solutions?

We need to make large files "350 mb to 2 gb" available to multiple users who are located on different continents.  We want to put the file in one location and have them download it from there.
They will want to automate the download routine.  We've thought about using something like Dropbox, a hosted FTP server, or a hosted website.

What are some some of the other options or services available that might provide a solution?

Ok, maybe an Hosted FTP site will be the best option, since you can still use automated downloads/uploads through scripts. I don't know if you can do that on Skydrive like solution.

Have a look at Windows Skydrive. Gives you 25Gb free storage and you can share with other users 
FTP server (FileZilla Server)  is an easy way to do this, and you can automate the downloads with a command file and put it on your scheduled task.

--Command: ftp -s:(Script File)
-- Script File
     prompt n
     mget "Your Files"

jharoraven - we want to host this offsite.  
Just to note,

Skydrive Free has a limit of 50MB per file, but plenty of free space if you stay below that limit

I use iDrive, 2GB free, Plus 10GB extra if you refer 5 friends, (just use fake emails :))

This also has an app that does online backups for you
