Kim Dotcom To Give Mega Users 50 GB Free of Charge

Kim Dotcom has revealed another piece of information about the upcoming files haring service Mega, which is scheduled to launch on January 19.

In a tweet, Dotcom stated that the service will provide 50 GB of storage at no cost.

According to another tweet, he is working to find a solution that old Megaupload users will get their original data moved to the new mega service. Dotcom mentioned that the electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is supporting him to reach court permission to do so, even if it is unlikely that the movie and music industry representatives will agree.

Mega's 50 GB are significantly more space than the 7 GB Microsoft offers for Skydrive, Google's 5 GB for Drive, Box.net's 5 GB, and 2 GB that is offered free of charge by Dropbox.

The Mega service will be located at Mega.co.nz.

    But will it have real time synch like Dropbox or just a cyberlocker like the original Megaupload?

    I guess "file haring" means they turn your files into some really funky art.

    50GB but the upload/download speed is a fraction of the pay user speed... fail.

    Nevertheless...

    A lot of Moviez and Muzic can be stored in it. Make also the upload and download speed at least 70% of the pay user speed.

    50GB of free storage is awesome. What is going to be the price point for premium users though?
