No, ping times will not go down. A data packet dealing with a 46,000 mile round trip is going to have some cost in terms of time.

Yep, can't beat the laws of physics. Just ask LightSquared.

Quantum Entanglement is the only faster source of communication known to man. Distance isn't a factor nor is interference. Problem is that we've only successfully transmitting a Quantum Entangled particle about 600KM and it takes quite a bit of "not friendly to space" tech.

Maybe in 20-25 years it'll microwave tech.
