Kim Dotcom wants to give New Zealand free Internet by suing the pants off of US government, Hollywood

Kim Dotcom Free New Zealand

Everyone would love to have free high-speed Internet service, but the question always is who will actually pay for it? If you’re Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, the answer is Hollywood and the United States government. As the New Zealand Herald reports, Dotcom has plans to build out a $400 million underwater cable to the United States that would “double New Zealand’s bandwidth” and would give New Zealand ISPs free access to high-speed Internet connectivity that they could sell to their customers at  just a fraction of current broadband prices. To help fund the project, the NZ Herald says Dotcom would consider “suing Hollywood studios and the US Government for their ‘unlawful and political destruction of my business.'” In addition to using lawsuits, Dotcom would also put up some money generated by his new Mega website to help foot the bill.
