Soon we may be living in quantum cities. A computer simulation of a city where universities, data centers and telecommunications hubs are connected by quantum internet suggests that existing technology is on the verge of making it a reality.

In a quantum city, telecommunications and institutions that process large amounts of data would be connected in a network that uses quantum devices instead of modems and routers. These devices would take advantage of quantum effects to make information sharing…
