    Kim Dotcom Announces Update on His Superweapon in the War Against Internet Censorship

    Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom has vowed to build an “indestructible, uncontrollable & encrypted” internet that protects people that will be “run by the people for the people.”

    Dotcom, who is wanted in the United States for alleged illegal file sharing, promises to build his version of the internet with privacy and freedom in mind.

    MegaNet, Dotcom assured in 2015, will be free from censorship, spying, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and hacking.

    In his 2015 tweet regarding MegaNet, Dotcom explained that his vision of an alternative internet will mean users no longer have an Internet Protocol (IP) address, the numerical label that every device, which is connected to the internet, uses. An IP address can be used to locate a device, as well as identify its user.

    RT reports that Dotcom has described his planned version of the internet as an “indestructible, uncontrollable & encrypted” alternative.



    “I have been working on this for a long time. Mobile networks and devices will be ready for this in four-five years,” he added.

    Dotcom’s most recent tweet comes in the wake of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) plans to kill net neutrality next month. In 2015, the FCC announced the “open internet order” which prohibited companies from prioritizing certain services in exchange for money, as well as restricting legal internet use.

    Ajit Pai, the chairman of the FCC, believes the repeal of net neutrality will promote more internet innovation and investment.

    “This burdensome regulation has failed consumers and businesses alike,” Pai said in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal. “In the two years after the FCC’s decision, broadband network investment dropped more than 5.6 percent – the first time a decline has happened outside of a recession.”

    “If the current rules are left in place, millions of Americans who are on the wrong side of the digital divide would have to wait years to get more broadband,” Pai added.

    One prominent figure opposed to the destruction of net neutrality is Julian Assange.

    The WikiLeaks publisher has warned President Trump that his opponents “control most internet companies.”

    “Without neutrality, they can make your tweets load slowly, CNN load fast and infest everyone’s phones with their ads. Careful,” Assange said in a tweet.
