In science:

Quantum key distribution over 122 km telecom fiber. Appl.
Microwave Photonics Parallel Quantum Key Distribution
Our experiment uses photons at telecom wavelengths, so it is ideally suited for long-distance quantum communication.
Heralded photon amplification for quantum communication
Using standard telecom fibers, we could violate Bell inequalities by photons that propagated 8 and 9 km, respectively, and were analysed in two Swisscom stations distant by more than 10 km.
Optical tests of quantum nonlocality: from EPR-Bell tests towards experiments with moving observers
Nowadays, the remaining birefringence is small enough for the telecom industry, but for quantum communication, any birefringence, even extremely small, will always remain a concern.
Quantum Cryptography
Indeed, besides using a shorter channel, what can Eve do? The telecom fibers are already at the physical limits of what can be achieved (Thomas et al. 2000).
