One year ago, Megaupload was closed by the american FBI and it’s founder Kim Schmitz, known as Kim Dotcom, arrested. Now in 2013 Dotcom returns with Mega, featuring 50GB of free upload space for everyone.
Made in New Zealand because of the USA which is still trying to get the extradition, Mega was launched in a big style with a huge party. In the first hour of life, it counted the outstanding number of 100.000 registration and counting as of now.
Already during the release, Mega experienced (and still is) heavy server loads due to the high request, and uploading might not work for everyone.
