1. The Internet brings people closer together. Before the Internet, it was possible to keep in touch with relatives and friends across the country or around the world--but it was also expensive.  Today, communicating with a friend in Japan is as easy and cheap as communicating with a friend across town, and families regularly use the Internet to keep in touch with far-flung relatives.  Millions of people with shared interests--no matter how obscure--exchange information and build communities through Web sites, email and instant-messaging software. The social benefits of the Internet  

2. Using innovative accessibility aids, people with disabilities can use the Internet to help overcome barriers that prevent them from leading more productive and fulfilling lives.Telemedicine applications can use Internet to transmit detailed medical images, as well as for videoconferencing to connect healthcare clinics in remote rural locations with experts and specialists located primarily in urban centres.

3. Telemedicine and e-Health are broadly defined as the application of electronic communication technologies to the provision of healthcare, health education and health services.Telemedicine applications can allow health care professionals to monitor a patient’s health remotely and, using videoconferencing technologies can have access to critically needed specialists.

4. The most prominent example of how the Internet has resulted in innovative new services is the development of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). VoIP allows high quality two-way voice transmission over broadband connections, and is already revolutionizing the telecommunications industry.

5. Smart Homes: Homeowners can utilize broadband technologies to control the electronic devices in the home remotely. Lighting, heating and air conditioning, appliances, and home security and other systems can now be remotely monitored and controlled.
