When it comes to the future of the Internet, Doug Comer has moved past hope...and on to expectation.

A 2019 inductee into the Internet Hall of Fame, Comer wrote the first series of textbooks explaining the scientific principles underlying the Internet’s design and communications protocols.

In a recent video interview, Comer said that his initial early hopes for the Internet, including reliable public access, were surpassed years ago. He is now banking on a future that includes infrastructural improvements that facilitate greater network access. 

“In terms of hopes, I’d say I have expectations that things will continue to get better in terms of technology,” he said. “We will have faster, more reliable, ubiquitous Internet everywhere, all the time.”
