The Tech Review blog announced on Monday that Richard Hughes and a team of researchers at Los Alamos National Labs in New Mexico have been running an “alternative quantum Internet,” and have been doing so for roughly two-and-a-half years. In a blog post the website broke down the basics of how Hughes and company created a system that works like a hub-and-spoke network in which all messages anywhere in the network get routed from a main node — a central hub.
So in quantum physics, two particles can be entangled and that means that when one of them is moved, the other one moves - it happens faster than the speed of light, and can be used to communicate instantly at a distance.

That is true - but would it be instant between the two quantum particles themselves? So it would still save time over a few light year distance, for example, compared to light-based communication?

Sounds like a old system they used during the cold war to link all of the missle silos together, if one was taken out all the others still could communicte with each other.
So why are they bring this stuff up again, what is the reasoning behind it.
