PCWorld: Gygan File Shring Service Offers Very Fast Downloads

Gygan offers up to 1GB of free downloads and it’s very fast, but it’s up against established competitors such as BitTorrent, Usenet, and RapidShare.

“Gygan is one of the newest additions into the file-sharing battleground. With so many choices already available–BitTorrent, Usenet, and RapidShare among others–can Gygan really offer anything new? There’s nothing groundbreaking, but it does fill a niche: Gygan (free up to monthly download GB limit) combines some of the best features of RapidShare and Usenet, but unlike the two it runs on an easy-to-use standalone client.

Like RapidShare, Gygan relies on users uploading content to their specific service, which is stored in a private sharing network on Usenet. Note that this is not P2P–Gygan provides indirect access to Usenet through their own servers. This allows incredibly fast downloads and uploads (maxing out almost any connection), but it’s also why you have to start paying after 1GB of free downloads. The first 1GB of downloads a month (4GB for the first month) is included for free users, but if you want more you’ll have to buy a monthly package for $.33-$.50 a GB. On the other hand, unlimited uploads are free for everyone–and you can even make money through Gygan’s Reward Program if enough people download your files.”
