Kim Dotcom and Mega

Filed as Infographic on February 25, 2013 3:37 am

Some of you in the crowd may remember the file-sharing site, Megaupload. They used to be the go-to option for cloud storage and easy access, yeah? As many of you know, that site hasn’t been around in ages, 1 year to be exact, but as the saying goes, ‘when one door closes, another one opens.’ From the ashes of  Megaupload’s destruction rises MEGA, founded by Kim Dotcom.

What is MEGA?

Mega stands for Mega-Encrypted-Global-Access, and it may or may not put you at ease considering where you stood this time last year when Megaupload bit the dust. The site is geared for brilliance no matter which way you look at it, though:

  • 3 low-cost plans, 1 free plan
  • Awesome traffic ranking thanks to some massive back-linking efforts
  • More files than you can shake a stick at, 50M and going strong
  • Privacy and Protection, as only 1 user has ever been fined for piracy

This certainly is not the Megaupload of yore, folks. They have a 10 Gigabit throughput and that delivers you some of the best speed from any file-sharing or cloud storage site. Ever.

Here’s the deal: sign up for other sites like 4shared (one of the worst out there) and tool around with it. Then go to MEGA and sign up. Let us know which one you think is better and we’ll try to stick you in a future review of the site when we get more feedback!
