PipeBytes – innovative file transfer service is fast, private and entertaining


PipeBytes. Now here’s interesting. A new free file transfer service which sends a file directly between two parties, rather than relying on a long winded web upload process. It’s very peer to peer, but unlike BitTorrent is a totally private transaction between the sender and recipient – and all done via any web browser. Just select the file and start an upload. You’ll receive a code which you send to the recipient (via email or IM) and they can start the download immediately while you’re uploading, which saves a lot of time on large file transfers.

There is no file storage, so the recipient needs to download immediately you start the transfer, and you can’t – yet – distribute to more than one recipient, but it’s a cool idea nonetheless. The entertaining part? You get to watch a Youtube video during the file downloading time. Aren’t they nice people? (and they get to serve you an advert). Oh, and there’s no file size limit. Nice!
