A month ago, the new Mega file-sharing service launched with much fanfare and media attention. The successor to the shut down MegaUpload site was created by MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom. Mega even got its own launch party, held at Dotcom's mansion in New Zealand. That same location was raided one year prior to the Mega launch as part of the operation by US law enforcement authorities to shut down MegaUpload.
Dotcom said at the time that the new Mega service got one million registered users a day after it went live to the public, which caused a number of server slowdowns and access issues. Monday, he posted word on his Twitter page that Mega now has over three million users, which would seem to indicate that the service's growth is now occurring at a more reasonable rate. He added that Mega now has over 125 million files uploaded on its servers.
#Mega launched 1 month ago: 3M+ users, 125M+ files, encryption unbroken, most bugs fixed, mobile apps & sync client coming soon— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) February 19, 2013
It remains to be seen if Mega will reach the number of subscribers that accessed MegaUpload, which at its height had 185 million registered users.
