    Is it true that you can make it to where you get premium account benefits without having to pay the stupid price just for a faster download?

    If you actually register with one of their free accounts you only have to wait 25 seconds and then you get 2MB/s DL speed. However I have a free account and don't have a wait period. Not sure how that works.

    Actually, I think they took the timer off completely because even when I'm not logged in I can download without waiting.
    Also, everyone should download this

    That's better... I made an account and the timer was gone. But what was weird is that it seemed faster than without an account.?

    Might I ask why you even want a Premium account. I bought one before, and it was the worst $10 I ever spent.

    Nothing changed at all.
    Regular users get full download speed, no wait time, and a nearly infinite download limit. Premium users get nothing more except an infinite download limit that you'll never notice.

    Just use Cryptload, then all you have to do is enter the Captchas, you get pretty much full speed and no waiting times.

    Actually the limit is 25GB/day. Which is more than my usenet account.

    Yep, no timer, no wait between downloads, upwards of 1.0+ mbps download speeds (per file), can download multiple files at a time (I've had 9 going at once). All without having an account.

    I realized their new and extremely generous downloading permissions a few months ago, after they changed and moved Premium Happy Hour to a less desirable time and length. Is this to make up for that or what?

    I don't care though. I love Megaupload even more now with these awesomely low restrictions.

    Yes, all Megamanager does is let you download a single file by parts, so it can be up to 6 times faster as long as your internet can handle it. Of course, if you have a premium account then it's better to just use a separate download manager like Download Them All because Megamanager is filled with spyware.

    And another thing, how come Firefox can't block the stupid pop-up ads from Megaupload?

    Megaupload is from Hong Kong.
