The new incarnation of Megaupload is “90% done”, reports suggest.
Kim Dotcom, who founded the notorious file-hosting business, tweeted in August “I know what you are all waiting for. It's coming. This year. Promise. Bigger. Better. Faster. 100% Safe & Unstoppable” following its takedown by the US Department of Justice in January, his arrest and subsequent release on bail.
This weekend, he revealed via Twitter: “Quick update on the new Mega: Code 90% done. Servers on the way. Lawyers, partners and investors are ready… Be patient it’s coming.”
Progress is apparently occurring despite Dotcom's forthcoming extradition hearing which was rescheduled to March 2013 due to issues with the way police handled the case.
Dotcom revealed: “We are building a massive global network. All non-US hosters will be able to connect servers & bandwidth.”
Promising a bigger and better service he added: “They abused the wrong guy. I am going to turn this world upside down. Power to the people. Bye bye Echelon. Hello Freedom.”
