Internet and Intranet will greatly increase in speed and capacity because some technologies have much improved. In wired network, the capacity has much growth up. It is because the technology of laser, fiber, transceiver, and multiplexer has much improved to carry more lambda and more capacity per lambda. Submarine cable, for instance, can have more than 120 lambdas per fiber-pair and 100Gbps or more per lambda.  In the territory, 400Gbps per lambda is coming soon. The most of access to building called last mile are to use fiber instead of twist pair. It can provide dedicated or sharing internet and intranet in 10Gbps.

Wireless has much growth in data capacity as well.  Today LTE 4G is covered almost all worldwide. The 5G of mobile is under testing in many providers. People can enjoy high speed of internet not only inside building but also outside building.  

These technologies and services are to deliver internet and intranet well for users. It lets user pay less but using more in bandwidth. These higher capacity and lower cost communication environments are to encourage much higher bandwidth requested applications come true for service soon. High Definition Video conference, HD VoIP, Virtual Reality, on line games, and Inter of everything expects to fulfill people expectation in entertainment and connectivity.

 I will focus on how internet or global network to cross border, what internet develops globally, what provider uses new technology to provide better connectivity for their users, and the bottleneck of internet affects quality.
