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.
Check out the additional article from Phys.org. I think they are using quantum communication without entanglement.
The main advantage they are going for in this case is security - if someone eavesdrops, or observes the quantum signal, it will leave a trail.
Quantum entanglement communication has been seen in sci-fi as a useful way to communicate through space. Although a lot of older academics seem to dismiss this as fantasy, I'm glad steps are being taken to get there.

Right, that's why the consensus is that entanglement cannot be used for FTL communication.
It doesn't matter what intricate system you build around it, we always have to verify the manipulations to make sense of the results, and this will always require classical communication.
I wont even mention that no FTL anything is going on with entanglement, not even instantanious action at a distance, it merely appears to us like that.
