Any further developments with the internet will focus on mobile phones, according to Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

The founder of the World Wide Web has suggested that the most "exciting" advances in internet technology will come via mobile broadband.

Speaking to the BBC as part of an interview to celebrate the internet's 20th anniversary, Sir Tim said that only the "tip of the iceberg" has been reached in terms of the web's potential.

"I'm convinced that the new changes are going to rock the world even more," he said, pointing to mobile broadband as a significant aspect of any future expansions.

"In developing countries it's going to be exciting because that [mobile broadband] is the only way that a lot of people will actually get to see the internet at all."

Sir Tim is director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) which develops guidelines, specifications and tools to help ensure the internet continues to evolve.
