"Videoconferencing has enabled the geographical distribution of project work via meetings that may integrate computer presentations, face-to-face exchanges, and data sharing. The use of these forms of data and information exchange in organizations are affected by combinations of context, task urgency, and bandwidth; although studies of these aspects of organizational data sharing date to the 1990s, the capability of high-speed Internet infrastructure has led to a majority of survey respondents reporting daily or weekly videoconferencing."
