Itís odd to read articles that someone extending Bluetooth to a kilometre but you never read about USB cables that go kilometre, yet they both target the same functionality with or with out wires.
You have obviously not been exposed to the stupid microsoft bluetooth stack. Note the absence of the Network Access protocol, so the only way to surf the net via bluetooth is to activesync via bluetooth (wire replacement) and use internet pass-through. Very much lke a mile-long USB cable, especially when the connection drops randomly.
