Trek communicators and long distance wireless

Finally, we can have our Star Trek communicators:
Just as Captain Picard would do, Vocera badge wearers can touch the slim device they wear on their uniforms, say who they want to talk to and, assuming that person is wearing his badge, be connected.

Uses VoIP, too....now if only I could combine that with the ultra-range high-speed wireless service they're lanuching in Austraila, you'd have a multi-mile instant voice-activated communicator. Enough range for, oh say, a starship?:

An Australian company launched a wireless broadband service in Sydney this week that lets laptop and PDA users roam up to nine miles away from the base station and still get a speedy connection.

Damn Aussies!
