I believe IBM also has a patent for faster-than-light communication,
which could greatly improve the interplanetary telephone network.

I don't know, if it was IBM, but searching for such a patent shows this
Citing from page 16 of the PDF file:
| The present invention takes a transmission of energy, and instead of
| sending it through normal time and space, it pokes a small hole into
| another dimension, thus, sending the energy through a place which allows
| transmission of energy to exceed the speed of light.
That's cool! I would like to have such a device for transmitting the
lottery numbers back in time :-)
