    Probably the same that happens to mobile signals in the same conditions. The signal quality deteriorates.

    Made me think of that movie Heat where Kelso says to DeNiro...

    "They send this information out, I mean it's just beamed out all over the damn place. You just gotta know how to grab it.."

    Sensationalist headline methinks.

    Another one of these technologies thats cool, but will never quite offer the same bombproof reliability of a proper physical connection.

    Re: Twisted light wireless “could make fibre-optics obsolete”

    why anyone uses wireless when they dont have to is simply beyond me?

    wire is easier to hack unlike a port where you have to be in the building and plug in <slaps head> just because you can make something doesn't mean you should.
