The Internet has undergone a growing diversification with regard to types of users, kinds of services and use of transmission technologies and infrastructures. Today, internet services are delivered by the use of many different wired and wireless communication technologies with different technical capabilities and limitations, and with different techno-economic characteristics.
The question is whether these trends challenge the current mode of governance for the Internet. In the early days, the Internet was considered to be open, free, competitive, with a high level of entrepreneurialism, and with low barriers of entry. In this paper three issues are discussed:
1) Developments in pricing schemes for Internet interconnection and Internet access with special focus on the role of wireless access.
2) Developments in supporting infrastructures with special focus on the increasing role of wireless technologies.
3) Developments in service platforms with special focus on increasing use of app based services especially in mobile internet applications.
