Kim Dotcom reveals Mega one month milestones Infamous file sharing king Kim Dotcom has boasted about the early stats and milestones for his new Mega adventure.
Dotcom even went as far as to say Mega is a "belief" and "a guardian angel of your rights, freedom, and privacy."

After just one month, the site has hit 3 million users. These users have uploaded 125 million files. The service reached 1 million users in its first 24 hours of availability.

Earlier in the week, Dotcom announced Mega would start accepting Bitcoins as currency and also that mobile apps for Android and iOS were on the way.

France and Spain saw the highest traffic to the service, followed by Brazil, Germany and U.S., adds Dotcom.

Perhaps more importantly than its file sharing capabilities is the cheap pricing for cloud storage. Mega offers the first 50GB for free, matching Box and beating Dropbox, Google Drive and Amazon significantly. Purchasing a 9.99 per month Pro package gets you 500GB of storage and 1TB bandwidth rate. A Tier-2 Pro account for 19.99 gets you 2TB and 4TB of bandwidth. The Tier-3 account, for 29.99 per month, gets you 4TB storage and 8TB bandwidth, huge numbers for the price.

The more I think about it I see Kim as drug dealer sort. If I wanted to do something dodgy I'd look into his service but not for anything legal. Spose he'd have to overcome this to appeal to the masses and go legit.


Just my $0.02,

Yes
His wife is pretty hot.

Here in NZ he is a sort of cult hero.

But deep down, we all know he is a bit dodgy.

Wowwww! Not bad. And of course it's dodgy! The governments say that he is the enemy, MUST be true.
