Have you ever wondered an Internet that cannot be controlled by the government authorities? An Internet absolutely void of censorship and hacking. A world wide web where you can post anything and everything without the fear of being spied by the government agencies and prosecuted? Well, there's one man who's actually working towards making this Internet utopia, and he's none other than Kim Dotcom.
Dotcom first expressed his desire to build an internet that "can't be controlled, censored or destroyed by the Government and Corporations" back in February 2015. Dotcom was talking about his own alternate version of the Internet – MegaNet – that will operate without an IP address, an internet network that cannot be spied or monitored by the prying eyes of the government.
Now it seems like, the founder of file sharing platform Megaupload is hard pressed with the impending duty, following the US government's decision to kill net neutrality next month. Dotcom has hinted in a series of tweets what seems like a potential launch of MegaNet. He said in a tweet that breaking net neutrality would "only accelerate the adoption of a new network."
Dotcom is on a mission to build a better Internet that is "run by the people, for the people."
The current corporate Internet will be replaced by a better Internet, running on the idle capacity of hundreds of millions of mobile devices. Run by the people for the people. Breaking net-neutrality will only accelerate the adoption of a new network. But first K.im and Bitcache.— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) November 22, 2017
He even revealed that the mobile networks and devices for MegaNet will be readied in the next 4 to 5 years and that the upcoming K.im and Bitcache applications will trigger the initial thrust for the new network.
I have been working on this for a long time. Mobile networks and devices will be ready for this in 4-5 years. When it goes live our dream of true Internet Freedom shall become reality. The upcoming K.im and Bitcache apps can provide the initial critical mass for this new network. https://t.co/SIdOV2Wt2f— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) November 22, 2017
