Mega to offer everyone 50GB of storage

Posted on Friday, January 18 2013 @ 14:41:21 CET by

In a new tweet Kim Dotcom reveals that his upcoming Mega site will give everyone 50GB of online storage for free. That's less than the old Megaupload service though, before it was shut down it offered 200GB of free storage space.
There was bad news to go with that, however. Dotcom said he was "hopeful we could give premium status to former [Megaupload] premium users on #Mega. Our lawyers say we can't at this time. We're working on it." Additionally, Dotcom noted he is seeking court permission to transfer data from former Megaupload user accounts to the new service, but there's no resolution on that yet. Of course, US authorities have fought attempts to return users' files.

50GB is quite a lot more than the free tiers offered by cloud storage and syncing services like Google Drive or Dropbox (although a service called MediaFire actually offers 50GB for free and has apps for the desktop, iOS, and Android). However, Mega has a much different use case. If it's anything like Dotcom's now-shuttered Megaupload service, many people will use it to upload large video files that could eat up 50GB relatively quickly.
