Can you remember the last time you spent an entire day without going online? Nowadays, regardless of country or social status, the Internet is there for you. You have a connection that allows you to access data and information on the other side of the world, and offers you the amazing possibility to meet new people without actually meeting face to face.
Even more, the Internet is entertainment. We have favorite sites and social networks, we love watching videos with cats on YouTube and we can’t rush home faster only to crash on the couch and start Netflix.
It’s a whole new world and all this is due to the wonderful network we call Internet. Right now, about 40% of the world population is online, but the numbers are increasing by the minute.
The internet changed the way we think, the way we socialize, and the way we work or have fun. But have you ever thought about how would this look in the future? Let’s put our problems aside for a short while and imagine how all these will look in the future.
The request for faster internet is increasing globally and lots of people living in developed countries would pay more for a better connection. This, combined with the new materials used to create high-quality transmission environments, will definitely allow providers to sell better plans.
But why do we need that much speed? Well, for now the speed we have is quite enough. Still, with the development of online streaming content and 4K video files, we are going to need a faster connection in order to send/receive bigger files. Even more, the WiFi connectivity is also getting better and faster. This way, our mobile devices may become more capable and we will use them in more complex activities.
TV, phone, and internet all together
This is more like instant future since all big providers support service bundling. These offers will allow users to cut costs and enjoy high-quality services in one single packet. Phone, Internet, and DIRECTV bundles make a lot of sense nowadays when we tend to use them at the same time. For example, imagine one Sunday afternoon, at home. You are watching TV and browsing online using your tablet. All of the sudden, your phone rings, you answer, continuing to browse online while the TV is still on. Sounds familiar?
The Internet of Things
Also called the IoT, the Internet of Things is definitely happening. For those of you who don’t know, IoT is a concept that has the entire world connected to the Internet through devices and even clothes. We dream at a world where the environment changes according to our mood automatically.
Take the example of the Smart Home. With the help of IoT concepts, the house will know what music you like, how tired you are, and what food you prefer. It will also prepare the mood, set the environment and display all the information that will be useful to you.
The world is changing in front of our eyes and we change with it. We are headed towards a beautiful feature where we can free our minds of tedious, repetitive tasks and allow us to think about the great mysteries of the world.
