Abstract
This paper gives an idea on what Internet's potential is for becoming an information highway. First, the information highway and the Internet are defined. Then the characteristics of an information highway are described. The concept of an information highway puts some requirements on the infrastructure. The users of an information highway, who are located in the residential and business environment, have their share of requirements as well, but they focus on the requirements put forward by the services or applications they will use on an information highway. At the same time we will check whether the Internet has implemented these properties and how, or if work is going on to develop them. The framework for this discussion is the TCP/IP reference model. Some emphasis will be put on the IP next generation protocol, IP version 6 (IPv6). It will become clear that the Internet certainly has potential for becoming an information highway.
