What will the future of the Internet look like? In 2016 we embarked on an initiative to explore the key trends and drivers that could change the Internet as we know it. The interactive 2017 Internet Society Global Internet Report: Paths to Our Digital Future was launched in September with insights into those key driving forces, as well as recommendations for the Internet we want in the future.
