Total file quota on Telegram

telegram-messenger

Telegram says that one can send files up to 1.5 GB. Does that mean in total or per file? If it meant per file, one could just misuse that as a backup service, right? One could pack up data in packets of like 1 GB, encrypt them and upload that to a chat with oneself.

Is there some official quota or would one just get a message eventually for abusing the service?

Indeed, it's meant 1.5GB PER FILE.
I guess there is either some kind of account storage limit or some limitations occurring when abusing.
But, still, no official documentation is available about this.
