MediaFire – A RapidShare Competitor

MediaFire recently expanded its services to Those of you have used RapidShare will be well aware of the 60second download limit and the download restrictions as well.

MediaFire hopes to change all that.

Signing up with MediaFire was extremely simple and took less than 10seconds! Don’t believe try it out :O

Few of the features included today:

For Uploading

  • 100% Free – Fully Ad Supported
  • Unlimited File Size
  • Unlimited Uploads
  • No Sign Up Required
  • Multiple Simultaneous Uploads
  • Easily Email Files After Uploading

For Downloading

  • 100% Free – Fully Ad Supported
  • Unlimited Bandwidth
  • Unlimited Downloads
  • No Waits, Lines, or Queues
  • Multiple Simultaneous Downloads
  • Supports Most Download Managers

The inteface uses Ajax and is extremely fast. You can upload upto 10 files at a time.
As of this point I haven’t yet tested their speeds and such so I won’t be in a position to comment.

You have a few unobstrusive Google Ads on the website. For their free service it is well worth having those ads.

They also don’t have Premium Service like RapidShare.

You can stay up-to-date with the MediaFire Blog.

A few questions that remain to be seen are how long will MediaFire survive like this. Hosting and Bandwidth don’t come for cheap. How long will MediaFire be run over by illegal and copyright files. They do have a strict message, but then so do other file hosting services.

But, if MediaFire works (and I hope it does), RapidShare will have a lot of brainstorming to do!
