The report titled, “Digital Life in 2025: The Internet of Things will Thrive by 2025” predicts that the Internet will increasingly become more “like electricity” in coming years for the average American.

In total, 1,867 experts and stakeholders responded to an open-ended question about the future of the Internet by 2025. Respondents of the survey expect the Internet will be more relevant in many places such as homes, environment, communities, goods and services, as well as mobile devices.

The report highlights the ever increasing need for high-speed broadband infrastructure and includes comments from Avery Holton, an assistant professor and researcher at the University of Utah.
