Quantum city simulation shows how to create a quantum internet the size of Paris
A simulated version of Paris where universities and telecommunications centers are linked by a quantum communication network suggests that existing technology is already close to the ability to create functional “quantum cities”

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…
