Well hopefully we won't need to worry about the speed of light anymore

Just recently I heard about the experiments with "quantum nonlocality" 
no one seem to understand how it happens but for me it's enough it works
Basically when 2 photons or electrons are emitted form the same source -they are somehow bound/entangled together -that 
means if we change the spin on one photon to "up" the other photon will have it's spin changed to "down" immediately
-and it doesn't matter whether the photons are next to each other or light years away -this happens instantly (no 
energy is transferred yet the information is passed)
-this was already tested between two cities

Imagine that instead of sfp connectors and dark fiber between San Fran and NY node we'd install a connectors with let's 
say 1500k entangled photons 
-and if we set the spin in a way to send a 1500kbit packet to NY the NY node would see it instantly -no cables needed

-also there some attempts to actually send the information 50 micro sec back in time

Of course there are still these issues with probabilities at quantum level

What we really need is a new method of sending data.  The fact that I
will never be able to send something from Maine to California in less
than 15 ms is not acceptable.

The speed of light is such a drag.
