Kim Dotcom's Mega launches, sees huge surge in user registrations

Mega launches, sees 250,000 user registrations on day one

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Jan 20, 2013 3:07 am

Kim Dotcom's new file sharing site Mega has launched in the last 24 hours, and it has launched to some huge early success. The launch took place on the one-year anniversary of the raid on his New Zealand home, after authorities close down Megaupload.

After just 10 minutes of Mega launching, Kim Dotcom tweeted that he had his server bandwidth going "from 0 to 10 Gigabit bandwidth utilization within 10 minutes". He later reported that sign-ups were rolling in at a rate of thousands per minute. Mega has been offering 50GB of storage for free, as well as three pricing tiers each offering additional storage and bandwidth capacity.

 

A total of 250,000 user registrations was tweeted by Kim Dotcom a little over 7 hours ago now, and minute later he tweeted "this is going to be huge", and I will mirror that. Mega is going to turn into somewhat of an elephant in the room, and that room is the US government, various authorities, the MPAA and more. Kim Dotcom just flipped them all off, big time.

 

At the time of writing, Mega wasn't loading for me - the server must be getting crazy amounts of hits right now.
