What Will The Internet Be Like In 10 Years’ Time?

The internet officially went live or was founded on 6 August 1991, though it initially received very little attention. Over time, it steadily grew in popularity and as technology progressed, it became increasingly advanced and diverse. Nowadays it’s a vast, complex system with all sorts of highly sophisticated features. It’s got to the point now where you can do pretty much anything online and experience many things in real-time. But what will the internet be like in 10 years’ time? What new developments will arise? How much more advanced can it get?

Connectivity

One thing about the internet that hasn’t changed since its launch is the fact that you have to connect to it. Doing so used to take a minute or two back when we had to go through our landline, now it can take just a second or two. Some think that by 2028, the idea of connecting to the internet will be a thing of the past. All devices that can run the internet will be constantly online and there’ll be no such thing as a device being offline.

The internet of life

We’ve already started seeing various everyday objects, including many household appliances. Over the next decade or so, both the number and the range of objects with internet connectivity will no doubt steadily increase. It may one day get to the point where the number of online objects is greater than the number of offline objects. We already have benches connected to the internet – where is it going to stop? There are already billions of objects with internet connectivity. It’s estimated that this number will continue to grow and may reach as high as 30 billion objects, or even more.

Privacy

Online privacy and the sharing of data have been hot topics recently. Many internet users are already growing concerned about their privacy when online – chances are they’re only going to become more and more concerned as the internet evolves. The more internet connectivity there is and the more devices with internet connectivity, the harder it will be for people who go online to maintain some sense of privacy.

Reliance

It’s safe to say that right now, many of us rely on the internet for many different things. Over the next decade or so, it’s likely that our reliance on the internet will only grow. There will always be those who try to live life without the internet, however these will become increasingly hard as the internet becomes necessary for more and more things. It may get to the point where you can’t do even the simplest of tasks without having to use the internet in some way.
