Expert: Internet to disappear in 20 years
Users will stop using this word by 2033.
It will be replaced by names of services supplied on the Internet, head of the Russian Coordination Centre for the national Internet domain Mihail Merdrish said. According to him, the services can include postal services, etc.
"The Internet will not be gone but users will not call everything connected with it “Internet”, they will use the names of services they will be getting,” RIA Novosti quotes Medrish.
The word “Internet” will gradually die out like “GMS” that is being replaced by the names of mobile technologies. Furthermore, the connection speed increase will make the notion “to download a file” disappear too, Medrish predicts.
