    This chapter presents the results of the Public Service Media and Public Service Internet Utopias Survey, an exploratory survey conducted by Christian Fuchs. The survey was the first step in the process that led to the Public Service Media and Public Service Internet Manifesto. The exploratory survey was focused on gathering ideas about the future of the Internet and public service media. The survey was qualitative in nature and focused on three themes: communication, digital media and the Internet in an ideal world; progressive reforms of public service media; public service media and the Internet in 2030. There were 141 responses. The survey results informed and structured the further work process that led to the Public Service Media and Public Service Internet Manifesto. The survey provides ample evidence for the importance of Public Service Media for the future of the democratic public sphere and shows that the Public Service Internet is the key issue for the future of Public Service Media. The survey inspired concrete utopian thinking among the respondents in order to generate new ideas about the future of the Internet.
