It is based on the speed of electricity vs the speed of light vs the speed of radio waves. Now fiber based on the speed of light would be faster. Coax is around 70% the speed of light. Fixed wireless would be close to the speed of light and faster than coax.
Sorry, but this made me laugh. I hope you're not being serious. :-/
Why would you laugh with facts?
The speed of particles passing through a certain media varies.
You can even slow down light through certain media if you want to, I think I just blew your mind.
Here is a quick wiki for those that need to open their eyes to reality: »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_of_e ··· ctricity
I was pointing out that LTE is not having higher ping times due to being wireless vs. a wired landline.
Just looking at the conductor, wireless will have lower ping times than any coax connection.
If someone is having higher latency on LTE wireless over coax line then it is purely from crappy equipment not because it is wireless.
