As January 19, the official date of Mega's launch, draws nearer, Kim Dotcom has revealed a bit more about the project, which has created a buzz among those who miss Megaupload.
A screen capture posted on his Twitter account shows storage of up to 50GB on the standard page of a free account. The same image shows that it should be possible to define the parameters of simultaneous connections in ascending or descending flows to maximize download speeds. According to Kim Dotcom, this upload/download accelerator will be a worldwide first.
Mega will be very much like Megaupload: a cloud platform on which you can store and share multimedia content (songs, videos, games, books, documents...) in one click.
However, Mega will make sure that each folder is encrypted and stocked simultaneously on two servers in two different countries.
