Using neutrinos to communicate through solid matter?

Would it be possible to communicate through the Earth using neutrinos? Neutrinos are able to pass through other matter as they are weakly interacting. The also travel at the speed of light (or faster according to some...).

Why would communicating through the Earth be beneficial? Such a communication medium would benefit from lower latency due to a lower distance travelled. This could be beneficial to algo-trading, particularly where it is reliant on information from the other side of the world (e.g. a different stock market).
