The Internet as we know it has had an immense impact on the way we communicate. We can now do it faster and more securely than ever before. Enabling quantum communication between any two points on Earth is the next step towards even more secure communication. This is the goal of the quantum internet. Although it is hard to predict all of the applications for the quantum internet, many protocols running on a network connecting nodes able to process qubits have already been identified. Typically, these applications require many qubits to be realized, a requirement which will not likely be met in the early quantum internet.
