The 2017 Internet Society Global Internet Report: Paths to Our Digital Future

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 the next year with insights into those key driving forces, as well as recommendations for the Internet we want in the future.


Our global “InterCommunity” membership meeting kicked off with the presentation of the new class of Internet Hall of Fame inductees. Following the ceremony, we passed the program to our nodes around the world for community dialogue on topics from the Internet Futures report, along with a time of celebration.
