Earlier today Kim Dotcom and his team decided to open up Mega to the public.
Soon after the announcement thousands of people registered an account, every minute.
“I have never seen anything like this. From 0 to 10 Gigabit bandwidth utilization within 10 minutes,” Dotcom wrote in a tweet.
A few hours later Mega’s user count hit 250,000.
Unfortunately, the site’s servers can’t keep up with the demand and Mega is suffering frequent downtime.
Kim Dotcom doesn’t appear to be worried and says things should be fine after the initial frenzy is over.
“The guys are working on balancing the load,” Dotcom says.
In a few hours Mega will launch officially with a Mega press conference. Perhaps we’ll hear more about Megamovie as well then ;)
