ChatGPT suspends paid plan signups after “exceeded capacity”, says CEO

It’s not a good week to be ChatGPT. Open AI’s CEO Sam Altman has shared that the creation of new accounts for ChatGPT’s Plus plans are suspended due to surge in demand.

As shared on Twitter this Wednesday morning, “The surge in usage post devday has exceeded our capacity and we want to make sure everyone has a great experience”, he shared, “We are pausing new ChatGPT Plus sign-ups for a bit.”, as reported by DeCrypt Emerge news site.

The CEO also shared that users will be notified once the sign up is available again after the interruption.

While ranking as the top artificial intelligence service according to a recent survey, ChatGPT has announced new features on Monday which include including an updated version of ChatGPT, the introduction of GPT-4 Turbo, which allows seamless work with both text and images, and the launch of the creation of “custom GPTs”, fitted to fill the user’s input and developments as needed.

Right after the announcement, Open AI’s star platform has faced shortage and downtime, raising the question around security issues touching artificial intelligence and suspicions of a hacker attack.

“We are dealing with periodic outages due to an abnormal traffic pattern reflective of a DDoS attack (…) We are continuing work to mitigate this.”, the company has shared at the time of the DDoS attack.
