The Internet Society’s 2017 report, Paths to our Digital Future: 2017 Internet Society Report (https://future.internetsociety.org), showed both the challenges we face in keeping the Internet open, collaborative and free, and also the optimism so many of our chapters, members and experts feel. The report has been a powerful tool in our global awareness and advocacy work. 

We want to work with you on a new report about how the Internet will develop in the next five years. Please take some time to fill in this survey, and let us know if you would like to share more information with one of our researchers. The survey closes on June 29th.

* Are you a member of the Internet Society?

* Stakeholder Group:

* What region are you from?

Section 1 – Is the Internet empowering your future?

The Internet and its applications should empower users not just with content and services, but with abilities like being able to choose, speak, and innovate. These abilities are key to shaping our future. 

* 1.1 The ability to connect
All Internet users, wherever where they live, should be able to connect to any other point to keep the Internet as a platform for innovation, creativity and economic opportunity. 

  Always Very Often Sometimes Rarely Never
Do you feel that you can connect to anyone and anywhere on the Internet?

* 1.2 The ability to speak
For the Internet to work as a medium for self-expression, users need to feel they can speak freely and collaborate without restriction. Private, secure and – when appropriate – anonymous communications let us express ourselves safely and securely. 

  Always Very Often Sometimes Rarely Never
Do you feel that you can express yourself online in a safe and secure manner?

* 1.3 The ability to innovate
The Internet was built on open connectivity and standards development. To keep it developing, so everyone can use it to innovate, we all need to be able to develop and distribute new applications and services on it.

  Always Very Often Sometimes Rarely Never
Do you feel you can develop new applications and services, without governmental or private sector restrictions?

* 1.4 The ability to share
The Internet enables sharing, learning and collaboration based on fair use, and the freedom to develop and use open source software. 

  Always Very Often Sometimes Rarely Never
Do you feel that you can fully share and collaborate online?

* 1.5 The ability to choose
User choice in competitive communications markets brings better, cheaper, and more varied and innovative services. Being able to choose communication and service providers lets users control their Internet experience.

  Always Very Often Sometimes Rarely Never
Do you feel that you can choose between services?

* 1.6 The ability to trust
Our abilities to connect, speak, innovate, share and choose all depend on trust. For us to trust Internet networks, applications and services, we need them to be secure, reliable and stable. 

  Always Very Often Sometimes Rarely Never
Do you feel that you can trust applications and services online?
