In this chapter, current issues of the Internet are addressed and arising problems of future Internet from socio-technical point of view are tackled. The future Internet considered as a Next Generation Network (NGN) will provide integrated services, i.e. interactive, multimedia, data, real-time, and mobile services. The focus will be placed on the end-user for whom this information and communications technologies (ICT) are primarily designed for. The user’s dependence on ICT is rising, being tied to increasing complexity of critical infrastructures (CIs) interdependencies. No wonder that also other stakeholders (service providers and network operators) have to be in the focus.
