There have been a number of free data storage solutions that popped up in the last few years, such as Figshare, OSF, and Zenodo. You can even use GitHub if the files are under 100 MB. I think there are others that I am forgetting. Is there a comparison available somewhere? Nature Scientific Data has one, but it is fairly limited. Why choose one over the other other than size constraints?

For example, many of them do not have an option to download the files with a basic wget. This seems like a basic and essential feature. They tend to focus on providing DOIs rather than making the data truly accessible.

I have not used it personally but CyVerse is another science focused option.

Amazon has a 12-month free tier for S3 data storage, which allows up to 5 GB and 20k requests (https://aws.amazon.com/free/?all-free-tier.sort-by=item.additionalFields.SortRank&all-free-tier.sort-order=asc). Files can be made available to the public, with the caveat that those limits could be hit. Requesting data from an S3 bucket is a glorified wget with extra HTTP headers, but it is often almost always easier to use S3 clients or libraries/APIs.
