Ultrafast Internet opens up new possibilities: experts

• http://news.yahoo.com

The ultrafast connections, expected to be widely deployed in the coming years, can open up a range of possibilities by delivering "immersive" experiences and virtual reality, according to the experts polled by the Pew Research Center and Elon University.

"People's basic interactions and their ability to 'be together' and collaborate will change in the age of vivid telepresence -- enabling people to instantly 'meet face-to-face' in cyberspace with no travel necessary," the report said.

Additionally, the report said that "augmented reality will extend people's sense and understanding of their real-life surroundings and virtual reality will make some spaces, such as gaming worlds and other simulated environments, even more compelling places to hang out."

The report is not based on a random poll, but instead an opt-in survey of people deemed experts or affiliated with certain organizations, taken between November 2013 and January 2014.
