Getting the entangled partner to point B will be at the speed of light or less.
But once it's there...then there will be no time between.

Satellites/probes will be able to instantly relate info/data from whereever they are. (talk about no lag-time)

If we were able to figure out a way to break down, then rebuild matter with the same pattern,
then it would be as an effective teleport machine.

There is the potential of entangling a very large set of particles,
sending the partner set to a far location, and triggering a singularity in each set...creating a gate/wormhole.

But we've got a ways to go before we can test these out...

Reality isn't broken, only our understanding.

QE will be used to communicate. Using radio will become obsolete in the next century. As our understanding of "reality" grows, so will the things we can do within the confines of it.

It's convenient for physicists that their current model mostly fits, and for quantum physicists that their model mostly fits, but there is still not a unified understanding. The fact that we still cannot fully reconcile both should give us pause to decide there are "absolutes" we understand right now.
